MINUTES 

of the 

FOURTEENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 

of the 

UNITED DAUGHTERS OF THE CONFEDERACY 

NORTH CAROLINA DIVISION 



FIRST DA Y— Morning Session 

The Fourteenth Annual Convention of the North 
Carolina Division of the United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy met Wednesday morning, October 12th, 1910, 
at 10:30 o'clock in Rocky Mount, the city by the Tar. 

Rocky Mount is proud of its patriotic heritage, for 
she has in her midst two of the living Bethel Heroes. 

There has never been a more pleasing program, so 
intermingled with Southern intellectuality and songs. 

The exercises were opened by our beloved Chap- 
lain, Miss Hettie James, of Wilmington; followed by the 
Old North State, sung by the choir. 

Addresses of welcome were delivered by three of 
Rocky Mount's most prominent citizens; the Mayor, 
Hon. T. T. Thorne, Mr. Jos. B. Ramsey and Mr. J. O. 
W. Gravelly and one by Mrs. M. O. Winstead, the able 
and enthusiastic President of the Bethel Heroes chapter. 



6 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

HON. T. T. THORNE'S ADDRESS 



In 1865, at the close of the war when the ragged Confederate 
Soldier buttoned his old gray jacket around him and turned his 
back upon the new made graves of his comrades in Virginia and his 
face toward his home in Dixie, he was confronted with a dual dut^ 
and responsibility. The one was to restore and rebuild to its 
pristine glory and beauty the fairest land that the sun in his course 
shines upon, the other to keep alive the heroic spirit of his people, 
the spirit that would make them brave and gallant in war, and sane, 
patriotic and wise in the hour of peace. 

The soldier and his son because of the superior strength with 
which nature had endowed them, assumed for their part to build up 
the farms and restore the cities of the land, and so the. days and 
years passed by. The time of reckoning has come. The confederate 
soldier has given an example to all the world not only of heroism 
in war but industrial and commercial achievements in time of peace. 

To the women of the South the returned Confederate soldier 
committed the larger and more responsible duty of preserving the 
history of his own achievement for the inspiration of ihose to come 
after him, to form and mould characters redolent with Christian 
graces — strong and vigorous in all civic efforts and brave and 
gallant in war. 

And so over her work 45 years has likewise come and gone. 
The hour has struck and the finished product comes from the work- 
man's hand. Bolder in its outlines than the everlasting Alps in the 
eyes of the world appears her handiwork and creation — the charac- 
ter of the Southern people. When Knighthood died the reverent 
world placed in its grave the glittering coat of mail and waving 
plumes but it kept for the people of the south its prieeless heritage 
of Chivalry: 

Self reliant, with high and holy ideals of society and govern- 
ment the world is looking now to the children of those who linked 
their destiny to the stars and bars and followed the fortunes of 
Jackson and Lee to save in its hour of peril this wonderful country 
of ours and give to it its rightful place among the nations of the 
earth. 

To you, the Ladies of the South belongs the glory of it all. 
Like Cornelia, the mother of the Gracchi you can place your hands 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 7 

upon the heads of our civic heroes and heroines and say "these are 
my jewels." 

The organization known as the United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy is the voice and expression of this spirit of noble woman- 
hood that has dared and won so much for our Southland. 

The voice and form are both with us to-day. V/ith reverant 
heads we stand uncovered in your presence; why say words of 
welcome to our Queen who wears a sparkling diadem and glorifies 
a throne? 

A long time ago when the silver moon was shining and shed- 
ding its soft and gentle radiance over the dew bespangled grass and 
flowers we offered you our hands and hearts. I come again commis- 
sioned by all the good people of this loyal Southern town to revive 
in your minds this sweet remembrance and to offer you our hearts 
and hands and homes, and to say that so long as you choose to 
abide with us, the keys of this city are yours and in all else we are 
yours to command. 



MR. JAS. B. RAMSEY'S ADDRESS 

Madam President; United Daughters of the Confederacy; Ladies 

and Gentlemen: 

From Rocky Mount Lodge No. 34, Knights of Pythias, and 
Rocky Mount Lodge No. 1038, Benevolent & Protective Order of 
Elks, I bring you greetings, and in behalf of local brotherhood 
generally I extend to you a most cordial welcome. 

We congratulate you upon this splendid Convention; we rejoice 
that you hold it in Rocky Mount; and wc trust that your delibera- 
tions ended v/ill rind each of you in love with our city. 

Your local Chapter "Bethel, Heroes," Daughters of the Con- 
federacy, has spared no pains and left no stone unturned to make 
this the most interesting and successlul Convention in your history, 
and our people generally have looked forward to your coming. We 
are truly glad you are here. 

It is difficult for me to add anything to the warm welcome so 
cordially extended to you by our Chief Magistrate, the Mayor, and 
yet, at the risk of too many words, we would still further assure 
you of our deep interest in those things, business and social, in 
which you are about to engage. 



8 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

When I was asked a few days ago to say something in behalf of 
my fellow Elks and Pythians, I did not stop to consider my inabil- 
ity, but just rushed in where I might well have feared to tread — 
anxious to proclaim my allegiance to your organization, which has 
done so much to perpetuate Southern traditions and ideals and to 
preserve Southern history— anxious too to express my admiration 
for the noblest and most beautiful type of all the Creator's handi- 
work, Southern woman. 

You played no small part in that great struggle between the 
States. Without you the war could not have lasted six months. 
With your aid and your sacrifice it was prolonged for four long 
years. 

At all times you were the inspiration and the hope, the light 
that never failed. You were the "pillar of fire" and ever "like the 
shadow of a great rock in a weary land." 

You were the song of the Old South: you are the theme of the 
New South; and to-day in this high hour of peace and commercial- 
ism, when men are prone to forget, we find you banded together, 
United Daughters of the Confederacy, all still loyal to Southern 
rights, democracy, and, thank God, to white supremacy. 

As Elks we applaud you; as Pythians we cheer you, and as 
Citizens we welcome you. 

A few years ago, and only a short while before he died, it was 
my privilege to hear General Gordon deliver his famous lecture on 
"The Last Days of the Confederacy." I have never heard a more 
glowing description of the waning fortunes of the Confederacy, nor 
higher tribute paid to the Southern Army, the grandest that ever 
assembled to marshal music, or drew sword in defence of a Nation's 
honor. 

I only wish that every man, woman and child in the South 
might have heard him. It made me love my Southland better and 
proud that I am a citizen of North Carolina. 

And sometimes now when I think of that magnificent oration 
and the glamour of war time is about me, I feel for the moment 
that I would be willing to be an old man with gray hair, and totter- 
ing step and slow, if only I might have been a soldier under Lee 
and a follower of Stonewall Jackson. If only I might have known 
a Confederate soldier's devotion to duty, and seen that vast army 
bow its head in prayer and ask the God of the Confederacy if it be 
His will to bless its fortunes; if only I might have been able to have 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 9 

faced the cannon's mouth uuflinching, and looking straight into the 
"valley of the shadow of death" have said with them: "And to die, 
if to die I must, with heart unswerved and face to the sod, give 
thanks to God, that I fought like a man with men." I say, if I could 
have known and done these things, I sometimes feel I would will- 
ingly be an old man with gray hair, and tottering step and slow. 

My friends, to have been there must have been glorious, noth- 
ing else will describe it. 

But I must not detain you; you are waiting to hear Mr. Dixon. 
In conclusion, I am reminded of a little story which is not original 
with me, and which I have told to my home people before, but they 
will pardon its repetition I hope, for it expresses so well what I 
wish to say: A few years ago, down by the docks of the great City 
of Boston, a cripple lad was accustomed to linger, and in return for 
the pennies tossed him by the captains and sailors of the great 
ships as they passed on their way to sea, he wished them a "bon 
voyage," saying "good luck to you, Mr. Captain, good luck to your 
crew." And so, Madam President and United Daughters of the 
Confederacy, in return for the pleasure you have given us by com- 
ing to Rocky Mount, in the name of the Orders I represent, I say to 
to you: Good luck to you, Madam Captain, good luck to your Crew. 



MK. GKAVELLY'S ADDRESS. 



Madam President; Ladies of the Daughters of the Confedek\cy: 

From sixty-one to sixty-five, the days and hours that were 
being indelibly written in the memory of the World's citizenship 
by the courage, valor, blood-shed and cveu death of the boys of the 
then Oasis of the Universe, there seemed to hover over sweet old 
Dixie, the deepest sorrow and darkest gloom. But it was not so, 
for from behind the clouds, the love and patriotism of God's great- 
est handiwork sent forth rays of hope, cheerfulness and love, con- 
verting darkness into light, weakness into strength, despair into 
determination, aud defeat into victory. 

Although the precious "Old rag," whose memory envelopes the 
hearts of every true southerner, was dipped at Appomattox into the 
cup of submission to unequal power, yet, our great, noble and 
universally loved Chicttaia was not defeated, nor the cause for 



10 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

which the nations truest and bravest men for four years fought, lost. 
As a result of the awful conflict, slavery was abolished, as in 
my opinion it would and should have been in any event, but the 
cause which prompted our people to appeal to the highest tribunal 
known to man, reigns victoriously today in the hearts of every true 
American. 

I beg you to accept these feeble words, not as flattery, but as 
unpolished praise most worthily deserved, for no cause, however, 
great or small since the return of Christ to His Father's bosom, has 
succeeded that was not blessed with the stamp of woman's approval. 
Whatever achievments, whatever success, whatever victory crowned 
the Southern arms is directly tracable and must be attributed to the 
incentives furnished the Boys in Gray by wives, sisters and mothers. 
Even the sad hours of yonder days have largely transformed into 
sweet memories, by woman's love and devotion as exemplified by 
their glorious and most successful efforts to forever perpetuate the 
memories of the brave deeds and heroic acts of the Boys who fell 
in defence of the Southern and most righteous cause, and with 
hearts full of sympathy and hands ever ready, make the remainder 
of life's short journey of the humble yet bravest of the brave, who 
escaped death on that memorable journey from Bethel to Appomat- 
tox, both comfortable and happy. If we who have been permitted 
to live to see with our own eyes and hear with our own ears the 
great work you are doing, can sing your praise, in the Name of High 
Heaven, what would those whose lives were given on the field of 
battle say and do, should they be allowed to return to earth. For- 
gotton? No never. Neglected? Not until the memories of the days 
of "Stonewall" and "Mars Bob" have been blotted from every South- 
ern mind by the paint brush of death. Your work ladies, is a most 
glorious work. It doubtless has, does now, and will until the end 
receive the most hearty support of every loyal Southern son. 

To me it appears nothing short of mockery for the Rocky 
Mount Tobacco Board of Trade, which I have the honor to represent 
on this occasion, to bid these patriotic souls welcome to our city. 
To say that we are glad to have you in our midst, is but a faint ex- 
pression of the real pleasure your presence among us affords. Our 
hearts and our homes are open to you and when this, your annual 
convention shall have finished its work and you return to your re- 
spective places of abode, may the blessings of Him who always 
strengthens and supports the advocates of a rightuous cause, be 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 11 

heaped upon you in untold quantities and may you be assured that 
when your task on earth is done, there awaits your coming to the 
world beyond, a sweet and never ending reunion with those whose 
memories you are here to-day to honor, 



MRS. M. O. WINSTEAD'S ADDRESS 



Madam President, Ladies, Friends, Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The honorable Mayor of Rocky Mount has thrown wide open 
the gates of our city, to welcome you, and has delivered the keys 
into your hands and conferred upon you the freedom of the town. 
Our genial young friend, Mr. Ramsey has graciously expressed to 
you a cordial greeting from two of the most benevolent fraternities 
in our city, and he has assured you that these fraternities, The 
Pythians and the Elks, are happy in your coming. Warm and 
earnest were the words of welcome from the representative of the 
Tobacco Board of Trade, Mr. J. O. W. Gravelly. He has expressed 
the pleasure and gratification of the business element of our city in 
having you with us. To me is reserved the honor and the pleasure 
of extending to you in behalf of the Bethel Heroes Chapter and the 
ladies of our town a still warmer welcome, a welcome to our homes 
and firesides, and to our hearts best wishes; to the best within our 
borders. I say unto you "Go ye up and possess the land." We are 
yours to serve; you must us command. 

When we look into your faces and see representatives of the 
finest womanhood in our land we do indeed feel honored. Our 
city is honored as it has never been before. These women are here 
in this great work of collecting and preserving the story of the great 
struggle between the states. Educating the coming generations in 
the truths of Confederate history. Building in stone and marble 
their monuments to valor, and building living memorials that reach 
out helpful hands to war scared veterans and to their aged wives 
and widows. Yes, Daughters, welcome, many times welcome, and 
may your stay within our gates be one continued feast of good 
things, intellectual and material and when the Convention of 1910 
shall have been numbered with the past, may you feel that "It is 
well, that you were here." We offer you the best we have; enter 
and take possession. 



12 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

These were warmly responded to by our honored 
State President, Mrs. F. M. Williams. 

Madam President of the Bethel Heroes Chapter, Ladies and 
Gentlemen: 

When the Bethel Heroes chapter last fall extended to the North 
Carolina Division an invitation to be its guests in 1910, every 
Daughter felt that a warm welcome awaited her in the city by the 
Tar. Today you have given us a welcome more cordial than our 
brightest expectation could conceive. A welcome to your hearts 
and homes. A welcome that is deeply appreciated, not only by the 
delegates assembled beneath your roofs, but one that reaches the 
heart of each of the 4000 North Carolina Daughters, whom they re- 
present. 

When the brave men, from whom we each claim our Confede- 
rate heritage, went forth at the call to arms, Rocky Mount was but 
a struggling village. Today she stands a proud example of what 
Southern grit and Southern perseverance can accomplish. Her 
manufacturies, her tobacco, her cotton have made her one of the 
queen cities of the east, and today the village of the past is lost in 
the thrift and magnificence of the present. May each succeeding 
year find her crowned with greater glory and more abundant pros- 
perity. 

Daughters of the Confederacy, we are the guests of the Bethel 
Heroes chapter. What a glorious title is theirs, and yet a greater 
heritage have they also. For have they not within their midst two 
of these same Bethel Heroes. 

How our hearts beat with pride, when as a state we can claim 
such men as our citizens. Mere boys were they when at the call 
for volunteers to fire that lonely house filled with Yankees, these 
six brave youths quickly stepped to the front. What courage was 
theirs, when they knew that almost certain death stared them in the 
face, Brave, noble, -grand. Henry Wyatt fell, to live forever as the 
first to shed his blood for the Southern cause, but the other five men 
were left us for a while to love and honor. Two have since joined 
Wyatt across the river, beneath the trees. Today are we thrice 
honored for not only have we as hostess the chapter named for 
these great men, but we have them also in our midst. Rocky 
Mount above all her other attractions claims the greatest privilege 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 13 

of being the home of two of these grand heroes. 

Therefore Daughters of the North Carolina Division we have 
more thau usual to be grateful for in the kind invitations given us 
for this year's convention. May our meeting be an inspiration to 
us to aim at greater and yet nobler things, may peace and good will 
be our watchword in every action, and may the convention at 
Rocky Mount be the best, the most fruitful we have ever known. 

Madam President and gentlemen, again in the name of the North 
Carolina Division I thank you for your kind words of welcome. 



Mrs. Jas. C. Braswell and Mrs. Geo. G. Hales de- 
lightfully entertained by singing "Furl that Banner." 

We were unusually fortunate in having an address 
by another of North Carolina's sons who has won fame 
throughout the country, Thomas Dixon, having recently 
written another play, "The Sins of the Father." 

Probably the most touching part of the program was 
the presentation to the North Carolina Division U. D. 
C. by the Hon. F. S. Spruill a gavel made by a Rocky 
Mount veteran, Mr. Christian, from a piece of dogwood 
grown on the spot where Henry L. Wyatt was killed. 
The dogwood was procured by Mrs. John H. Thorpe, 
wife of one of the living Bethel Heroes. 

HON. F. S. SPRU1L1 'J ADDRKY) 

Madam President, Ladies, and Gentlemen: 

On Monday morning, June 10th, 1861, a shot was fired which 
was heard around the world. Almost within the sacred precincts 
of a quiet country church, where everything suggested peace, and 
the echo of the toiling Sabbath bells had barely died away, the first 
battle was fought in a conflict that proved the most sanguinary in 
the world s history. The blood and treasure lost and spent in that 
gigantic conflict would feed and clothe the poor of the world for a 
century. It is not meet for this occision that I should attempt any 
vindication of the cause for which we fought. History, within half 
a century of the events which made it, has justly appraised our 



14 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

course, and our mighty struggle has ceased to be termed a "rebellion" 
and is now justly called the "War for Southern Independence." 

Neither is it necessary for me to add one word to the just 
tribute the world has paid to Southern valor and heroism. Since 
time was, there has been no such exhibition of dauntless courage 
and deathless loyalty as was displayed by Southern men and women 
in those four years of blood and carnage. It is not invidious that 
from all this display of glorious manhood I should point to one 
heroic figure whose deeds of high emprise on that Monday morning 
half a century ago were a sort of first-fruits, a shining portent of 
that, at the doing of which, the world was to stand amazed. A 
great war was ushered in, and on its first day, ^hile myriad bullets, 
speeding from hostile guns, were whining their messages of death 
Col. Hill, in command of the immortal Bethel regiment, passing 
down the lines pointed to an empty house in the enemy's posses- 
sion, which formed a valuable strategic point for their sharp-shoot- 
ers, and asked Capt. Bridgers if he could not have it burned. It 
should be borne in mind that his men were not drilled and hard- 
ened soldiers, used to death and grown callous to scenes of blood- 
shed. They were beardless boys whose largest experience in mat- 
ters of life and death, up to that time, had been a fox chase, or per- 
haps a deer hunt. And yet, when Capt. Bridgers asked for volun- 
teers to go through that hail of death and burn that house, as if they 
had been invited guests speeding to a bridal dance, six men, North 
Carolinians all, leaped forward to perform the fatal mission. Geo. 
T. Williams, Thomas Fallon, John H. Thorp, Robert H. Ricks, 
Henry L. Wyatt and Robert H. Bradley; truly it is a roll of immor- 
tals, of men who were not born to die. I will not tarry to pay just 
tribute to this illustrious sextette, their heroic deed has spoken 
them into deserved fame. As the enemy's guns thundered a volley, 
Henry Wyatt fell, as becomes a man and a soldier, with his face to 
the foe. From a wound in his forehead the slowly oozing blood 
told the story of his death. Hear the account given by Maj. Ran- 
dolph, an eye witness to its happening, fifty years ago: "On getting 
there (to the battle field) I learned from the infantry that a small 
house in front was occupied by sharp-shooters, and I saw the body 
of a Carolinian lying thirty yards in front of the battery. He had 
been killed in a most gallant attempt to burn the house." What a- 
legacy of honor to leave to his loved ones! What noble epitaph 
can be written above a soldier's grave! 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 15 

That Carolinian was Heavy Wyatt, in whose memory the 
patriotic women of the State are now engaged in building a worthy 
monument. His was the first life offered upon the altar of the 
South, in token of her supreme faith in the justice of her cause. 

The years have passed. Cn the battle field of Big Bethel in 
spring time now the mating birds sing and the flowers blossom. 
Near the spot where the life blood of Henry Wyatt enriched the 
soil, there sprang up a lusty young dogwood, whose star likeflowers. 
by their silent symbolism, have annually reiterated the truth of a 
nation's peace. Not long since, a Confederate soldier, Jno. L. 
Christian, compatriot of Wyatt and Thorp and Bradley, walking 
over the blood-baptized field of Big Bethel, and living again in 
memory its glorious history, cut, as a memento of his visit, the dog- 
wood into whose sap had been drawn young W\att's liie-blood. 
The fancy seized him to make it into a gavel to fit the hand of the 
presiding officer of that organization that is now engaged in pre- 
serving for posterity the history of those times and of the men who 
made them. For the Daughters of the Confederacy, who gave to the 
cause, in time cf war a deathless devotion, and in time of peace a 
constant memory; who are even now piously and persistently r 
gathering together the matter from which will be written a true 
history of that mighty epoch, he designed and carved this symbol 
of authority. In the name of Joha L. Christian, Coniederate Vete- 
ran, worthily wearing his cross of honor and marching to meet the 
enemy, now as he did half a century ago, smiling and unafraid, the 
Bethel Heroes Chapter presents ibis gavel, with its historj as I 
have told it, to the North Carolina Division of the United Daugh- 
ters of the Confederacy. On it the patient hand of this old Con- 
federate has lovingly etched the features oi those two princes oi 
the earth, Tee and Jackson. To him, as to us, they were the world's 
best types of men and sold.ers. Mi/ to meetings rapped to order 
with this gavel be conducted with the same high sense of patriot- 
ism that inspired them whose features adorn it. 



The gavel was accepted by Mrs. Williams in most 
appropriate words. 

Mr. Ricks and Mr. Thorpe were escorted to the 
rostrum and General William Ruffin Cox who com- 



16 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

manded the last charge at Appomatox, after repeated 
calls responded most happily for a few moments. 

After the presentation of the state flag by Mrs. W. 
C. Feimster of the Ransom-Sherrill Chapter, Newton, 
and its acceptance by the State President, the Fourteenth 
Annual Convention was declared ready for business by 
Mrs. F. M. Williams. 

MRS. FEIMSTER'S ADDRESS 

As it is customary for a State Flag to be presented at roll call at 
every General Convention, and as this year North Carolina's Presi- 
dent will be one of our own loved members, the Ransom-Sherrill 
Chapter, through me, wishes to present the flag that will be sent to 
Little Rock by the North Carolina Division. 

We do this as a token of the love we bear our fellow-member; 
as well as a mark of the high esteem in which she is held by her 
chapter, for her untiring zeal in state and chapter work, and for 
loyalty and devotion to the Confederate cause. 

Mrs. Williams, may you bear this to the Little Rock Conven- 
tion with the same love and pride that you have ever given to the 
work of the Ransom-Sherrill chapter. 



Mrs. Winstead made the motion that the following 
resolution be sent Prof. Hill: 

It appearing that from his history of the late war, Prof. D. H. 
Hill has omitted the name of R. H. Ricks from the list of the six 
men at Big Bethel who attempted to storm the empty house, now be 
it resolved that a letter be written to the author calling attention to 
his omission and asking him to correct the same." 

The roll call showed present Honorary Presidents, 
Mrs. W. M. Parsley and Mrs. E. E. Moffitt; Honorary 
Vice-President, Mrs. T. J. Jarvis. The officers absent 
were Miss Carry Leazar of Mooresville, 3rd Vice- 
President, and Mrs. Thos. Lee Craig, of Gastonia, Re- 
corder of Crosses; Miss Rebecca Cameron, Hillsboro, 
Historian and Mrs. W. O. Shannon of Henderson, Asst. 
Historian.

FIRST DAY^- Afternoon Session 

The afternoon session was called to order by the 
President at 2:45 o'clock. Imm< after the open- 

ing Mrs. Williams was presented with a cane made by 
Mr. Christian, with the message, "The hand that rocks 
the cradle rules the world." 

Mrs. Winstead then read invitations: One extend- 
ing courtesies from the manager of the Gem Theatre to 
the members of the Convention, and the other to a 
reception to be given by the Pyfhians, at night from 
8:30 to 1 1 o'clock. 

Telegrams of greetings were read from the President 
General, Mrs. McSherry; North Carolina's Asst. Histor- 
ian, Mrs. W. O. Shannon; the 3rd Vice President, Miss 
Carrie Leazar; also from Mrs. Frank Anthony Walke, 
Norfolk, Va. Motion was made and carried that these 
telegrams be responded to. This was done. 

Annual report of the President was read and ac- 
cepted with thanks: 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 23 

REPORT OF PRESIDENT 

Dear Daughters of the North Carolina Division: 

One year ago you placed me in the highest office within your 
gift, and it has been ray earnest endeavor to give you the best ser- 
vice in my power. Nothing has come before my work in the 
Division. I have given to every work and every question my most 
earnest thought and attention. Every letter or postal has been 
answered the day it was received. Promptness and conscientious 
attention to duty has been my watchword and it remains with you 
to say whether you think I have faithfully fulfilled the high trust 
you gave into my keeping last fall at Wilmington. 

Soon after that Convention closed I sent out a letter of warmest 
greetings to every chapter and urged them to pay special attention 
to each and every branch ot our State and General work. 

It was not long after the Convention that the State treasurer 
notified me that there was a deficit of $4.02 in the amount due the 
painter for the Randoiph-Shotwell portrait. There being $6.00 in 
the treasurer's hands credited to the Wirz Monument fund and that 
being completed your president ordered the treasurer to place $4.02 
to the credit of the Shotwell portrait fund and thus liquidate our 
indebtedaess to Mrs. Marshall Williams, the remaining $1.98 being 
added to the State fund. 

Early in December cards were sent out to the Chapters notify- 
ing them of the continued illness of our Recorder of Crosses and 
stating that all papers for Crosses of Honor should be sent to your 
president until the Recorder should be able to resume her work. 

Your president's attention was next called, by a newspaper 
clipping, to the fact that the Confederate Veteran at Nashville had 
published a statement that North Carolina had but two monuments 
to her Confederate dead, one at Pitts'ooro and one at Bentonville. 
Immediately your president made out a list of all the monuments 
of which she knew, and refuting this assertion in the strongest 
terms sent a copy of her letter to the Veteran, Keystone, News and 
Observer, and Charlotte Observer requesting publication. She also 
asked her Corresponding Secretary to send a card to every Chapter, 
requesting that they notify her at once which had monuments, 
which contemplated erecting and also to send the name of any 
towns they knew had a Confederate Monument but where there was 
no U. D. C. Chapter. Our list of these monuments, erected to North 



24 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

Carolina Soldiers is very incomplete and your president would urge 
that Chapters take some interest in aiding and securing a thorough- 
ly correct list. 

Having been told by your last president of the earnest request 
by the Committee in Richmond for a North Carolina flag to float 
above our state column in the Jefferson Davis monument on cer- 
tain occasions your president early in the year obtained through 
the courtesy of Pflrs. Allison Hodges, your vice regent of the N. C. 
room, the desired dimensions. The best wool bunting flag was 
ordered and sent to Richmond where on May 10th it waved above 
the N. C. column. 

In December a heavy bereavement caused Mrs. Brodnax, our 
most efficient chairman of the educational committee, to resign her 
work and Mrs. William H. Overman was appointed to fill her place. 

Your president has been called upon to make several decisions 
in very important matters, and it now remains with the convention 
to decide whether those rulings were correct or not, but to them all 
she gave much thought before deciding. 

1st. An appeal came from Florence, Alabama for $50 towards 
the purchase of Christmas seals to be sold for the benefit of the 
Arlington monument. Our state treasury could not stand the strain, 
but North Carolina must not be delinquent in her duty, so your 
president ordered the treasurer to pay this amount out of the 
Arlington fund, as that seemed best, since all the proceeds of the 
sale of these stamps would go to the Arlington Monument. 

2nd. Late in the spring came another request for a decision 
and that was whether a mother chapter had a right to take from a 
Children's chapter, money which they had made, and desired or 
intended to otherwise use. In this matter your president, decided 
that the children under their leader, had a right to control their 
own funds. 

A request came in August from our President General for the 
name of a good worker to be placed as Director from North Carolina 
on the Dan Emmitt Monument fund and the name of Mrs. John H. 
Anderson, president of the J. E. B. Stuart chapter, Fayetteville was 
sent her. 

The work along all lines has been progressing finely as will be 
shown by the different reports. The money for the Henry Wyatt 
Monument is about completed and the 50th anniversary of the day 
on which the Bethel Heroes performed their deed of valor, and our 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 25 

First at Bethel fell, will see the veil fall from the handsome bronze 
statue to his memory. 

The Endowment Fund to the North Carolina Room should call 
for prompt attention. We must not lag behind other states in this 
matter. 

In April and again in May your president met with the com- 
mittee on the Boy Soldier Monument at Chapel Hill, at that place; 
plans and designs were submitted and work begun in earnest, and a 
stirring appeal is now made to the ladies present to return to their 
homes determined to lose no time in raising the required money 
for the cause. 

Our educational work has been progressing finely. Many ap- 
peals have been sent out to local institutions, with the result that 
fourteen scholarships were reported to the General Educational 
Committee in July. Of these the Division sripports three at the 
State Normal, Greensboro, covering all expenses, the University 
gives two free tuition scholarships, one to the state, one to the 
general organization. There is one at A. and M. College at Raleigh. 
The others are local scolarships awarded by chapters or individuals, 
and given only to descendants of Confederate soldiers. Of these 
Charlotte is the oldest, then there is one at Mt, Pleasant College for 
tuition, room rent and fees; the others are all for tuition, namely, 
at Fassifern in Lincolnton, given in honor of Judge Wm. J. Shipp, 
one at Davenport College, Lenoir, one at Oxford Female Seminary 
one at Claremont College, Hickory; one at Catawba College, Newton, 
and one at Concordia College. Conover. Your president is justly 
proud that in her home county three of these scolarships have been 
given. 

During the past year, as well as can be learned, there have been 
erected the following monuments; at Reidsville, Lenoir, Monroe. 
Rutherfordton, Morganton, and Henderson will unveil this month. 
Winton and Durham have laid cornerstones. A tablet commemo- 
rative of the Confederate Navy Yard in Charlotte has been placed. 
This tablet is on the spot where stood the Navy Yard when moved 
from Norfolk. The Dixie-Lee Children's Chapter of Tarboro will 
on October 18th unveil their fountain to Henry Wyatt. 

The Division has been augmented by three new chapters, 
King's Mountain at King's Mountain, Raeford at Raeford, and 
Ransom-Lee at Sanford, making 88. Three others have their papers 
about ready. Children's chapters have been organized at the fol- 



26 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

lowing places, the Rockingham Volunteers, Reidsville; Lee-Jackson, 
Durham; Richardson Mallet, Chapel Hill; Bonnie Blue Flag, Lenoir, 
and one at Mt. Olive, and one at Graham. The Children of the 
Confederacy now number 33. 

Three U. D. C. chapters have been reported dead and stricken 
from the roll after repeated attempts to revive them: Matt Ransom, 
Middleton; Holly Springs, Holly Springs; and Clayton, Clayton. 

356 U. D. C, certificates have been signed and sent out to chap- 
ters. 

In May your president was appealed to by Mrs. Brooks, to take 
tip the Soldier's Home work again as they needed help. This was 
done, and here the suggestion is made that we never drop the work 
again till the Home ceases to exist. 

Your president would urge the Daughters to subscribe for the 
Keystone. One copy at least should be taken by every chapter in 
the state, and its N. C. column read at the monthly meetings. Thus 
are you kept in touch with the work of your Division, and you can 
also gain valuable information regarding what is being done in 
other states. Chapter secretaries are urged to keep Mrs. Gordon 
Finger of Charlotte informed, from time to time, of work done by 
their chapters, so as to give her material for her monthly reports. 

In August your president was requested by General Irvine 
Walker, Secretary of the Monument to Confederate Women Associa- 
tion to make an appeal to the Daughters of North Carolina. This 
she did and Gen. Walker had the appeal printed and gave your 
president a number of copies, which will shortly be sent out to the 
different chapters. This appeal will be read to the convention 
later in its session. 

Your president would suggest that hereafter stationery be furn- 
ished to the Chairman of each committee, as it would give more 
dignity and prestige to the office. Also that each chairman be al- 
lowed to have her postage paid out of the amount collected for the 
work she represents. Those committees doing state work without 
collecting money should however have their postage paid out of the 
state fund. 

The suggestion is also made that the uumber of minutes printed 
be increased to 600, as your president found this year, after sending 
the allotted amount to each of the chapters, that there were not 
enough left over to meet the demand from outside parties and use 
in organizing new chapters. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 27 

All pledges made at the Houston Convention in the name of 
the North Carolina Division have been redeemed. 

The Grim Reaper has paid many visits to the homes of our 
members, and four of our prominent workers have felt his presence. 
In December Mrs. Brodnax was called upon to give up her only 
child. Later our Chairman of the Home for Wives and Widows, 
Mrs. Hunter Smith, saw her beloved brother fall asleep. In May 
the husband of our Assistant Historian, Mrs. W. O. Shannon passed 
away. The last was Capt. R. H. Brooks, so long the faithful super- 
intendent of the Soldiers Home, and husband of her whom we all 
loved to call our own Mrs. Brooks. To all of these your president 
wrote words of love and sympathy from the Division. 

And now the resume of the year's work is completed, but be- 
fore closing I would say a word regarding the many courtesies 
showered upon me during the year, as your representative. 

On May 3rd on an invitation from their president, I attended 
the Convention of the North Carolina Federation of Woman's Clubs 
and bore them greetings from the North Carolina Daughters. Here 
your president was most royally treated, and was invited to make 
one of the receiving party at the reception given by the Daughters 
of the American Revolution. After the Convention she visited 
Littleton, by special invitation, and was elegantly entertained by 
the Roanoke Minute Men chapter, and the Annie Lee children of 
the Confederacy. On May 10th an invitation was accepted to at- 
tend the unveiling in Raleigh of the Gateway in the Confederate 
cemetery. This is not the Memorial Arch, but the small pink 
granite gateway turned over to the Johnson Pettigrew chapter by 
the Division several years ago. While in Raleigh your president 
had the pleasure of meeting and talking with a large number of this 
flourishing chapter, being delightfully entertained by their presi- 
dent, Mrs. Josephus Daniels. 

Lenoir gave a cordial invitation to attend the unveiling ex- 
ercises of their Confederate Monument in June, and your president 
witnessed the falling of the veil from this beautiful memorial to 
Southern bravery, besides being delightfully entertained at a re- 
ception by the Z. B. Vance chapter. 

June 29th was a memorable occasion to the people of Rocking- 
ham county, for at that time at Reidsville, the veil fell from their 
exquisite Confederate Monument of granite and Italian marble. 
Your president was not only present, but was honored by being 



28 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

selected as one of the four ladies to draw the veil. The afternoon 
before an elegant reception was given her by Mrs. Hall, president 
of the Rockingham chapter. 

Before closing this report I desire to utter a few words of 
hearty thanks to the members of the Executive Committee as well 
as to the chairmen of Committees for so ably upholding my hands 
and aiding in carrying forward our work during the year. 

FANNIE RANSOM WILLIAMS, President. 



Reports of the Recording Secretary, Corresponding 
Secretary, and Registrar were read and accepted with 
thanks. 

RECORDING SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It has been one of my most pleasant duties during the past year 
to sit at my desk daily and communicate with one or more of the 
Chapters of the North Carolina Division of the United Daughters 
of the Confederacy. In every instance each letter that has been 
received has brought with it kind words, encouragement and con- 
sideration for me; which has always been appreciated beyond 
words. 

I have tried to respond promptly to all requests, and if there 
have been failures to do so, it was through no indifference or lack 
of interest on my part. The work continues to grow and that 
among the Children's Chapters is most gratifying. The State books 
record 88 chapters, and thirty one Children's Chapters; there 
being four new chapters: King's Mountain Chapter, King's Moun- 
tain; Raeford Chapter, Raeford; Ransom-Lee Chapter, Sanford. Also 
four new Children's Chapters: Lee- Jackson Chapter, Durham, Rock- 
ingham Volunteers Chapter, Reidsville; Richardson Maliett Chapter, 
Chapel Hill and Mt. Olive Auxiliary, Mt. Olive, have been organiz- 
ed this year. 

1150 application blanks for the chapters and 493 for the 
auxiliaries have been sent out, 275 letters and 115 postals have been 
written. 

It is to be hoped that the chapters have discussed the suggestion 
made at last Convention in regard to reducing the size and cost of 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 29 

the minutes. This is a very easy matter, if reports will be made 
short enough to cover the ground, without unnecessary details. 

I thank you Daughters of the North Carolina Division for the 
honor you have conferred upon me and earnestly hope my work 
has been satisfactory. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JACKSIE DANIEL THRASH. 



CORRESPONDING SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

During the past year the services of your Corresponding 
Secretary has been always at the call of the president when needed. 
Chairmen and members of all committees were promptly noti- 
fied. A circular letter was sent out to each Chapter, and also a re- 
quest for aid for the Soldiers Home. 

Letters written during the year 101, postals 111, circular letters 
91. Postage on same amounting to $4.04. 

Thanking the Division for their kindness and co-operation. 
Respectfully submitted, 

BESSIE YOUNT FEIMSTER, 
Cor-Sec. N. C. Div. U. D. C. 



REGISTRAR'S REPORT. 



Madam President and United Daughters of the Confederacy: 

I have the honor to herewith submit my annual report as your 
Registrar. All data, herewith appended, have been compiled with 
great care, and I have done my best to secure accuracy. However, 
it is incumbent on me to say, as an official duty, that the books of 
the Registrar have not, do not, and cannot, in the present state of 
affairs, accurately reflect a true condition of your organization, as to 
number of members, names of members et cetera, 

I heartily commend to this body that some measures be taken, 
whereby a general overhauling of the records of the Chapter Regis- 
trars and the State Registrar may be had. This will be absolutely 
necessary, to the end, that your Registrar's books may be what they 



30 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

should be; to-wit: an accurate reflex of the condition of your 
organization, 

I am sure that those who have preceded me in the office of 
Registrar, have given liberally of their time, industry and fidelity 
to this work, as your present Registrar has done; and yet for a lack 
of careful and accurate information that must be furnished to the 
State Registrar, by the individual chapters, it has not been possible 
to have the State records so accurate and reliable as they should 
be. 

Your Registrar feels that, in justice to herself, she may say a 
word here in explanation of having returned individual member- 
ship blanks to the several chapters, whence they came. On the re- 
commendation of the Registrar-General, the last General Conven- 
tion, held at Houston, Texas, October 1909, amended the constitution 
to this effect; and your Registrar in returning said blank?, acted 
under instructions of that general officer. 

Conforming to the new rule, your Registrar must send to the 
Registrar General, only names of members, names of ancestors, 
companies, regiments and titles, or rank. 

The requirement of all State Divisions is now made by the 
general organization, that revised type-written copies of all State 
Registrars' books be sent by State Registrars to the Registrar- 
General. Your Registrar was physically unable to do this stupen- 
dous work herself, nor would it be fair to expect any Registrar to 
do it. However, she secured estimates from several public typists 
and the lowest bid she had was ten ($10.00) dollars per thousand 
members. Having no authority to expend any sum of money for 
such work, your Registrar contented herself by making inquiry of 
the few State Divisions that have complied with the rule, and takes 
the liberty of commending to this body that the State Registrar be 
furnished, by each individual Chapter Registrar, with a type- 
written list, carefully revised, of the required data. This data to be 
properly compiled by the State Registrar and forwarded to the 
Registrar General. This method of procedure allows a division of 
the labor and secures a substantial saving to your treasury. 

Your Registrar came to this work without experience, and has 
prosecuted it without experienced assistance, and naturally she has 
made mistakes; yet, "it is human to err, but divine to forgive," and 
rendering this account of her stewardship in this sentiment, she 
will be amply compensated if it meets with your approval. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 31 

Our Registrar General, than whom we have no nobler nor 
abler member, concluded her last report with the words of Philip 
Brooks' "Burden Bearer," which are equally appropriate here: 
"The little sharp vexations, 

And the briars that catch and fret; 
Why not take them all to the Helper, 

Who has never failed us yet 
Tell Him about the heart-aches, 

Tell Him the longings too; 
Tell Him the baffled purpose 

When we scarce know what to do; 
Then leaving all our weakness 

With the One divinely strong, 
Forget we bore the burden, 
And carry away the song." 
Our work is a noble one, voluntarily assumed by a band of 
noble women, and should ever be performed under the influence of 
noble purposes, 

Respectfully submitted, 

ELIZABETH REED WATT, 

Registrar. 



The report of the Recorder of Crosses was read by 
Mrs. Williams, who has so willingly and faithfully 
carried on the work during the illness of Mrs. Craig. 

CROSS OF HONOR REPORT. 



Daughters of the Confederacy: 

During the continued illness of your Recorder of Crosses, Mrs. 
Thomas Lee Craig, your president has kept up the Cross of Honor 
work for her, so that chapters might not be disappointed in getting 
Crosses for these desiring them at appointed times. Your special 
attention should be called to certain rules, which if carefully at- 
tended to, would save much trouble to both Recorder and chapters 
and secure Crosses where otherwise they are not attainable. 

First, all papers are required to be in Mrs. Raines' hands three 
weeks before appointed time. Little attention is paid to this by 
chapters, applications often being rushed in a few days ahead of 



32 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

time, giving no time for corrections. All applica tions must be 
signed by two veterans giving company and regiment, as well as the 
Adjutant of the ca.np, and these companies and regiments must be 
written after endorsers name on record sheets. Post offlee money 
orders must be made payable to the Custodian of Crosses, now Mrs- 
Raines, she will not receive checks, and lastly sufficient postage 
first class should always be sent your state recorder, with which to 
forward all papers. 

You hardly realize, ladies, that your Recorder of Crosses is re- 
quired to compare every application blank with your record sheet 
in order to approve befoie forwarding, and then she has to record 
in her books. It is an immense amount of work, but chapter 
presidents or custodians can greatly aid by seeing all requirements 
are complied with before sending papers out of their hands. 

During the year there have been 787 Crosses of Honor awarded. 
Of these 749 were to veterans and 38 to descendants and widows as 
follows:

Respectfully submitted, 
FANNIE RANSOM WILLIAMS, Pres. 



A motion was made and carried to accept the re- 
port with thanks to Mrs. Williams. 

In the absence of the Historian, Miss Rebecca 
Cameron, her report was read by the Recording Secre- 
tary and accepted by the Convention. 



34 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 
report of historian 

Madam President: 

A report of the year's work is in order, but like Channing's 
"Needy Knife Grinder;" "Lord love you Sir, I've no story to tell," 
for out of our eighty four chapters only two chapter Historians 
have reported any work. These honorable exceptions were Mrs. 
E. D. Foxhall of the Dorsey Pender Chapter, Tavboro; who reports 
filing two historical papers; and Mrs. J. P. Leach, of the Roanoke 
Minute Men, of Littleton; who reports eight. These make on filei 
so far as I know, one hundred and twenty seven papers. 

But only a hundred and twenty seven papers, when we sent 
125,000 men to the front is so infinitesimally small a portion that 
we should be, every one of us, most heartily ashamed of it. Why 
cannot we do better? Other states sent fewer men, most all of them 
file more historical papers, and so, in the years to come, can claim 
more soldiers by the records they can show. Yet, we might if we 
would, surpass them all by this simple matter of justice to our own 
men. 

"The field is white to the harvest" now, but in a little, little 
while there will be nothing left even for the gleaners. 

They are going so fast, these matchless men who wore the Grey! 
Barely a skirmish line is left now, and we let them go with their 
splendid memories unrecorded, their heroic stories all untold! 

Oh! Daughters of the Confederacy! This should not be! I pray 
you, I beseech you, each one, to make an effort this year to gather 
up what fragments may yet be had; what stories can yet be told by 
living lips. Today I was told of the death of a gallant soldier 
cousin of mine, who died in Goldsboro, and here with us, as I write 
these words, a gallant officer of the 56th North Carolina, is 
dangerously ill. Death will not wait upon our tardy leisure, nor 
break the seal he sets upon brave lips. 

There is no time to lose if we care to own those wonderful 
stores for those who will care, but will be too late to hear, and to 
record them. 

Three monuments have been reported to me this year. One at 
Reidsville, one at Weldon, and one at Lenoir. I was sorry not to 
be able to accept the invitations to be present on each occasion. 

A very handsome, and well gotten up history of the immortal 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 35 

twenty sixth Regimeni has been published by Assistant Surgeon 
George C. Underwood, and I am greatly indebted to Mrs. J. M. 
Brown, of Albemarle, for a copy of it. 

And speaking of this work brings me naturally to a circular 
letter issued by our Historian General, Mrs J. Enders Robinson, of 
Richmond, Virginia, urging upon all the Divisions of the CJ. D. C. 
the establishment by each one in their most centrally located city, 
of a U. D. C. Exchange Library, the object of which will be to 
locate, collect and preserve by gift, purchase or bequest, all Mss., 
newspapers, books, letters, poems, music, maps, charts, drawings, 
text books, money, stamps, State rosters of troops, and any and all 
miscellaneous matter connected with, or concerning in any way the 
C. S. A. dating from 1850 or even father back. 

The officers of these libraries shall be a Librarian and Assistant 
Librarian, never the Division Historian, or Assistant Historian, who 
shall reside permanently in the library city, and shall always be 
members of the U. D. C. 

This plan commends itself to me very strongly, for as Mrs. 
Robinson says, "many valuable papers are rapidly passing to other 
sections through gift or purchase," and many are being hopelessly 
lost by fire and flood and carelessness. This grand work is crying 
aloud for the aid of the U. D. C. There is not a day to lose, and I 
therefore beg our Division President to appoint a Librarian, and a 
Library Committee at once, for no time is ever so good as the pre- 
sent, for today only belongs to us, tomorrow may never be ours. 
Respectfully submitted, 

REBECCA CAMERON. 



AUDITING COMMITTEE REPORT. 



The Auditing Committee have examined Mrs. Eugene Little's 
books and find them correct in every detail. This committee would 
suggest that the Treasurer's books be closed on October 1st and all 
money for the year be sent in before that date. 

We think thanks are due Mrs. Little from the Convention for 
the beautiful and concise manner in which she has kept the books. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. J. B. RICHARDSON, 

Chm. Auditing Com. 



36 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

Mrs. Little, Treasurer, next read her report and was 
given hearty thanks by the Convention. The report 

showed accuracy and that much attention had been 
given it.

56 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 
SECOND DAY— Morning Session 

After the reciting of the Lords' Prayer by the Con- 
vention assembled, and a most touching prayer by the 
Chaplain, Miss James, the business session began at 
10:30 o'clock. 

The President appointed the following Committee 
on resolutions of thanks: 

Mrs. D. A. Garrison, Gastonia, chairman; Mrs. J. B. 
Richardson, High Point; Mrs. W. M. Ransom, Littleton; 
Mrs. B. L. Tyree, Durham; Mrs. Newton Smith, Fayette- 
ville. 

Telegrams were read, one from that ever good 
friend of the Daughters and true soldier, Gen. Julian S. 
Carr of Durham, and one from the Virginia convention, 
in session in Suffolk. The motion was made and carried 
that responses be sent to both. This was done. 

The song "United" composed by our gifted and 
highest type of womanhood, Mrs. Mary Speed Mercer, 
of Edgecombe county, was sung by the choir, after 
which, Mrs. Winstead explained the reason the Daught- 
ers should be loyal to this song. 

Then Mrs. Mercer most interestingly gave a sketch 
of the purpose of her work. Each chapter was earnestly 
requested to insist that the sale of the song be encourag- 
ed in order that the Endowment Fund, for the perpet- 
uation of Annie Lee's grave, might soon be established. 

As is the beautiful custom, time was given for 
Memorial exercises, and chapters so unfortunate were 
called upon to pay tribute to their deceased members. 
The President requested a moment of perfect silence.. 

A moment of peculiar interest to your Recording 
Secretary was when the "mother" of the North Carolina 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 57 

Division, Mrs. W. M. Parsley, of Wilmington, a noble 
woman that knew the hardships of '61-65, and bore 
them with equal patience and fortitude, was escorted to 
the platform, and Mrs. Williams, in most touching and 
appropriate words presented the beautiful pin to her, 
that was the privilege and pleasure of her Daughters to 
give her. 

MRS. WILLIAMS'S PRESENTATION OF PIN 

Daughters of the North Carolina Division: 

Will you, for a few moments, »o with me back in memory to 
those days that tried men's souls, that made heroes of these men 
and yet greater heroines of the women. 

Twas a day in 1862; the scourge of disease and pestilence lay 
over the city, where dwelt a proud young couple, to whom all was 
joy and sunshine, for they had that day plighted their troth to each 
other; she a maiden yet in her teens, he a brave and noble young 
man. But the clouds of war gathered fast and faster. His State 
needed his services, so with breaking heart though smiling lips,this 
fair young bride bade her husband go forth to battle for the right. 

A few brief visits home, to brighten the lives of the lonely wife 
and her tiny babes. The dark day of Appomattox was approaching 
and the little remnant of that long gray line would soon return to 
their firesides and their families. But the Master yet needed a few 
more of the Souths grand heroes, and one day in the fight around 
Petersburg this young hero, now bearing the title of Colonel, laid 
down his life upon his country's altar. 

Dark days of sorrow and fight with poverty ensued for that 
young widow and her babes, but with it all she yet found time and 
heart to aid those weary, heart-sore men who had fought beneath 
the Stars and Bars. To aid'them in sickness and distress, and to 
cover with earth's fairest blossoms the silent resting places of the 
men whc wore the Gray was to her ever one of life's greatest 
pleasures. 

About 1893 there came the news of the organizing of the first 
chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy. The cause, for which 
this chapter was to do and dare, appealed to the eager heart of this 
noble woman, and she persuaded the Memorial Association of her 



58 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

native town to become the third chapter of this great organization. 
By 1896 several other chapters had been formed in the State, and 
this same leader called them together in the city of Wilmington 
and there formed the North Carolina Division of the Daughters of 
the Confederacy. 

From that day to this, our friend and organizer has ever stood 
ready to aid in every good work for the Confederate cause. Time 
and again she has been the head of the banner chapter in the state. 
To us, one and all she is a tender loving mother. Ker ear is ever 
ready to listen to her Daughters call for assistance. To many of us 
she is well known, to others more or less a stranger, but to us all a 
well beloved mother. There is but one person in this grand old 
state of ours, to whom we give that name, and that is Mrs. William 
M. Parsley, the organizer of the North Carolina Division. Such is 
but a brief, imperfect sketch of one, who stands for all that is true 
noble and grand among that band of heroines, the Women of the 
Confederacy. 

And now, dear Mrs. Parsley, your Daughters have bid me bring 
to you in their name, this slight token of their love and esteem- 
May its scintilating jewels speak to your heart of the glory of a 
cause, we know was right. May its encircling wreath remind you 
of the laurels that will forevermore rest upon the memories of 
every hero who bore the gray and of every woman who stayed at 
home and waited for the tidings from the front. May the pin itself 
bring to you ever, thoughts of the tenderest love and devotion of 
your Daughters of the North Carolina Division. 



Mrs. Winstead was so enthused she requested the 
Convention to assist her in giving expression to her 
feelings by singing "Blest be the Tie that Binds." 

A letter was read from jhe Hon. L. V. Bassett, re- 
gretting his inability in not being able to carry out his 
part of the program. His place was taken by General 
Irwin Walker, Commander Army of Northern Virginia, 
U. C. V., asking the Division to lend its support and in- 
fluence for the erection of a Monument to the Women 
of the Confederacy— our Mothers and Grand-Mothers. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 59 
Motion was made by Mrs. Henry A. London: 

That the President appoint a committee to memorialize the next 
Legislature for an appropriation to erect this Monument to the 
Women of the Confederacy. 

After much discussion it was carried, then followed 
by another: 

To reconsider Friday morning immediately after the opeuing 
of Convention. 

Motion was seconded and carried. 
Report by the Chairman of the Memorial Arch 
Committee was read and accepted. 

report memorial arch 



Daughters and Friends of the Confederacy: 

As many of you know the movement to erect a Memorial Gate- 
way at the entrance of the Confederate Cemetery in Raleigh was 
inaugurated at the Convention held in Asheville seven years ago- 
It waa voted at a subsequent Convention that each chapter donate 
twenty dollars. Since that time about 45 chapters have re- 
sponded, and so far about 40 chapters for some reason have not con- 
tributed to this object. 

A resume of the progress of the work may be important. We 
now have about $1000 in hands of the treasurer. We need $2000 for 
the work. This will about cover the stone work and will not in- 
clude bronze tablets with names of all the chapters inscribed there- 
on. Since this cemetery holds the mortal remains of over 1000 
soldiers of the Southern Confederacy, representing every Southern 
State; therefore the Memorial will not be a local one, but to 
memorialize the Southern soldiers. I recommend the following as a 
suitable inscription: 

"A Memorial to the soldiers of 13 States, erected by the U. D 
C. of North Carolina." 

We hope to enroll the name of every chapter in North Carolina. 
Every daughter and member should have the privilege of adding to 
this fund. It is a glorious opportunity for the daughters of the 
state to unite in erecting this Memorial Gateway, which will stand 



60 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

as a tribute to Southern Valor and an enduring evidence of woman's 
devotion to her valiant dead, of those who gave their lives to a lost 
cause, and whose deeds will never die, but will live in the hearts 
of a devoted and grateful people. 



Motion was made by Mrs. Winstead: 

That after the Wyatt Monument fund is raised, we make the 
Memorial Arch a special work for the corning year. 

This brought forth unusual discussion, but was car- 
ried. Motion was made to adjourn after the announce- 
ment was made that the Convention would be enter- 
tained in the • evening by the Benovelent Protective 
Order of Elks of Rocky Mount. 

Luncheon was given by the Tobacco Board of 
Trade. 



SECOND DAY- Afternoon Session 

At 2:40 o'clock business was resumed, opening with 
prayer by the Chaplain. 

Following the rules of the Constitution the election 
of officers was taken up. 

Tellers, Mrs. Chas. Lee Smith, Mrs. Marshall 
Williams, and Miss Lena Reinhardt, were appointed. 

The following officers were elected unanimously: 

Mrs. F. M. Williams, Newton, President; Mrs. M.O. 
Winstead, Rocky Mount, 1st Vice-President; Mrs. Jose- 
phus Daniels, Raleigh, 2nd Vice President; Miss Carrie 
Leazar, Mooresville, 3 Vice-President; Thad W. Thrash, 
Tarboro, Recording Secretary; Mrs. W. C. Feimster, 
Newton, Corresponding Secretary; Mrs. Robt. Kornegay, 
Goldsboro, Treasurer; Mrs. Robert Davis, Louisburg, 
Registrar; Mrs. W. M. Creasy, Wilmington, Recorder of 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 61 

Crosses; Miss Rebecca Cameron, Hillsboro, Historian; 
Mrs. W. O. Shannon, Henderson, Assistant Historian; 
Miss Hettie James, Wilmington, Chaplain. 

Motion was made that letters be written to Mrs. 
Shannon and Mrs. Wills expressing regrets at their ab-

ments. This was done. 

Report of Educational Committee was read by the

EDUCATIONAL COMMITTEE REPORT 



President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

To-day, I stand before this Convention in the place of another: 
lovely Mrs. Brodnax, who has taken such active interest in this 
noble work, has halted on account of deep affliction, and our 
President, Mrs. Williams, asked my services in her place for the 
year. The work is new to me and I have not accomplished as much 
as I hoped, still our efforts have not gone backward, but interest 
has been kindled in new directions. It is truly said a mother's 
influence never dies but reaches onward and upward through 
eternity. Seed sown is felt through coming generations. Next to 
motherhood is the power of education reaching onward and upward. 
Therefore the educational interests of the Daughters of the Con- 
federacy must be our noblest and best work. To honor our dead 
heroes with monuments, must be done, for monuments tell a 
nation's history, a nation's glory. To shelter our infirm veterans is 
fulfilling a divine command, honoring old age, the greatest of these 
is charity, is love. But with education for the young is a power 
for future generations, future greatness. Who can estimate what 
the power of education is? The development of mind and heart, 
that lights genius, that opens to the world some powerful discovery, 
some invention to help mankind, some great missionary to go forth 
to the world carrying the light of Salvation to darkeded minds. 
'Tis here then we find the blessed comfort that we are on the right 
duty, lighting the right spark. This educational interest begun 
must be continued, become perpetual, the noble work yearly in- 
creasing, pressing onward. I find in talking of the work of the U. 



62 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

D. C, more interest is awakened when we speak of what we are 
trying to do for the education of the children of veterans than any- 
other. I feel that in this direction we have the prospect of raising 
more money, than for any other object. Camps, individuals, 
memorial scholarships have a prospect of being perfected, Jet us 
then hope, let us hope for great success. 

Our Treasurer in her report gave the amount of funds on hand, 
and what chapters are interested in this great movement. The 
opening of the fall term at Greensboro in September received three 
young girls sent there by the educational fund of the Daughters of 
the Confederacy, one from Newton, one from Mooresville, the third 
from Reidsville. We would like to place at least four scholarships 
instead of three. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. WILLIAM H. OVERMAN, 
Chrm. pro tern for Mrs. Brodnax. 



Call was made for the report from the Executive 
Committee and read by the Recording Secretary. 

Each suggestion was voted on separately and ac- 
cepted: 

1st. All Chairmen of Committees have the privilege 
of calling on the State funds for postage connected with 
their work. 

2nd. All chapters to be taxed one cent per capita 
to pay for the complete list of registration up to date. 

3rd. To continue the appropriations and com- 
mittees for the Soldiers' Home and to have a purchasing 
committee for same. 

Report from the Arlingtan Monument was next 
read by Miss Hicks in the absence of the Chairman, 
Mrs. Faison, and accepted. 

ARLINGTON MONUMENT REPORT 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The report of the North Carolina Division for the Arlington 
Confederate Monument Association is not aa good this year as it 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 63 

has been for the past two years, I am sorry to say. So many of our 
towns and counties are erecting Confederate Monuments it is hard 
for the chapters to contribute to everything. 

North Carolina has always stood second in this work, and I 
hope next year we will endeavor to be first. 

Why cannot every chapter in the Staie raise $100.00; or the 
smaller ones, $50.00, during the coming year, and pay what North 
Carolina is expected to give at one time, so I will not have to call 
upon the chapters every year? Even my penny collections from 
the schools in the State have not been so good, but since I began 
this it has added quite a nice amount to our collection. I began 
this penny collection m the State for Arlington Monument alone 
and it is my scheme. 

Ladies, I wish to tell you about a Confederate Seal or Stamp to 
be used on all Christmas packages, letters, postals or anything sent 
by mail or hand, gotten out by Mrs. Edgar James of the Florence, 
Alabama, Chapter, U. D. C, and sanctioned by that State and our 
President General, Mrs. McSherry. It is now ready for use and all 
chapters are expected and earnestly urged to take hold of this work 
for Arlington Monument. I will take order for them at once; $5.00 
for one hundred envelopes, with one hundred seals in each enve- 
lope; 50 cents for each envelope, and they can be retailed two for 
one penny. So you see you can make a neat sum, and it is all 
credited to your chapter for Arlington alone. Send all money to 
me and I will send to State Treasurer, as this money belongs to our 
General Convention. Every cent made on these seals or stamps 
belongs to Arlington Monument exclusively. 

Each State Director sent $50.00 and received one thousand 
seals, which will net $500.00 or more. 

The following is a list of chapters contributing and of the 
penny collections taken in schools by chapters:

66 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 



CHAPEL HILL MONUMENT REPORT 






In April, the committee appointed for this work, met in Chapel 
Hill. Mrs. F. M. Williams, State President, a member ex-officio of 
this committee, was present. 

President Venable presided over the meeting, and showed 
many beautiful designs that had been sent for our inspection by 
different firms of marble works and sculptors. 

Most of these were too expensive for us to even consider. 
Plans for raising money for the erection of this monument were 
discussed. One of these designs from Mr. John Wilson, sculptor, 
was beautiful, but cost more than we could afford. This design was 
presented at last Convention, and was much admired. We decided 
to write to Mr. Wilson for further estimates for a less expensive 
monument, and to decide on it at our next meeting in June. Before 
adjourning, we selected the site for the monument. It is to be north 
of the Caldwell monument, and about fifteen feet on the north side 
of the main walk that runs across the campus from east to west- 
This is a fine position for it. 

The committee met again in June, during commencement week- 
This time it was augmented by the auxiliary or advisory committee 
of Veterans which had been selected at the former meeting in April. 
This "advisory committee" consisted of General Carr, Colonel 
Kenan, Maj. H. A. London, Maj. E. J. Hale and Dr. Venable. 

After examining the beautiful designs, (some of them slightly 
changed), and discussing the minutest details of each, the joint 
committee decided on the one sent by Mr. John Wilson, a Canadian 
Sculptor, now living in Boston. He had changed it somewhat at 
the suggestion of the committee, and considerably reduced its price 
for us. Its cost will be $7500. It is thought that the alumni will 
give a great part of it, if the Daughters will give $1500. 

We can easily do this, but we must hurry; for the Veterans of 
the State earnestly desire that it shall be unveiled in June 1911 ) 
when the "Boys of '61 and '65" hold their Reunion at the Univer- 
sity during commencement week. It will be the fiftieth anniver- 
sary of 1861. 

I quote from President Venable's interesting speech at last 
Convention: 

Dr. Venable said that he was aa adopted son of North Carolina, 
but one who loves the State as a native son. He had been thrilled 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 67 

with the historic story of the. University and knew of no story in 
history that would compare with it. The placing of the monument 
on the campus is not a local matter, for North Carolina and the 
University arc inseparable. The pages of the civil history of the 
State are filled with the deeds of University men. He regretted 
that the records had been imperfectly kept, and stated that even 
though the records are not complete the story is an inspiring one* 
There were all told, more than 1,000 University men in the struggle 
between the States, enlisting from various States of the South and 
out of this number one-third were killed. At least 40 per cent of 
the students entered the military service which is a record not 
equaled by any other institution. From some of the big Northern 
institutions there were 23 per cent; from University of Virginia, the 
the speaker's alma mater, 25 per cent. Of those who volunteered 
from Virginia 225 were killed while of the North Carolinians be- 
tween 340 and 350 never returned home. They laid down their 
lives in the most important battles of the war. 

Dr. Venable said that he would like to see the monument at 
the University because it would tell eloquently of the story of the 
sacrifice made by the students prior to the civil war. Their record 
should ever be before the eyes of the present-day students. Tablets 
have been erected in memory of those who lost their lives, and 
those who enlisted are worthy of a monument. 

Let us all come forward, and give the money now, or as soon 
as possible, so that we can know what to depend on. Mr. Wilson 
told me on his visit to North Carolina in July, that he had always 
required a guaranty of 1-3 of the money in advance, but, that feeling 
sure that the Daughters would pay him before the unveiling of the 
monument, he would not require it of us. 

The following amounts have been contributed to this monument 
up to date, aad paid in to the Division Treasurer. (See her report.)

In addition to the above, many of the chapters that have 
already given, promised a still larger contribution, and these that 
have not contributed promised goodly amounts to be paid early in 
the year. 

I would suggest that each chapter appoint a member to collect 
contributions in her town and county. These to be sent through 
her chapter, but must not be confounded with the chapter contri- 
bution. The name of each contributor to be sent with the amount 
to State Division Treasurer. These names will be enrolled in a 
book at Chapel Hill. For Dr. Venable keeps the names of every 
person who gives a cent to the University. 

I beg of you to attend to this immediately. For unless a suffi- 
cient amouut is paid in early in the year, the committee will not 
feel justified in having Mr. Wilson go ahead with the work — the 
money not being in sight. And thus the monument could not be 
unveiled in June 1911. 

Respectfully submitted,

NORTH CAROLINA ROOM IN RICHMOND MUSEUM REPORT- 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

I beg to submit the following report of the N. C. Room since 
our last State Convention in Wilmington. It is becoming more and 
more difficult to secure relics because of the effort of the owners to 
keep them in their own State, and naturally as the years go by the 
relics become scarcer. The following articles have been given: 

A history of North Carolina given by the author Dr. J. B. 
Alexander, of Charlotte. Five pieces of calico that sold for $9.00 
and $12.00 per yard that ran the blocade in Wilmington, and also 
some skeins of thread spiin from cotton, and used for sewing, given 
by Mrs. Wm. Parsley of Wilmington, the first President of the 
United Daughters of the Confederacy in North Carolina. A sample 
of coffee taken from a sack which came through the blocade at 
Charleston, S. C, in 1863, given by Mrs. D. P. Hutchinson, Charlotte, 
N. C. Loans: Mrs. John Wilkes, of Charlotte, N. C, loaned a map 
that was the only one General Beauregard had to guide him in 
his campaign. This map was afterward returned to Capt. Wilkes 
with General Beauregard's thanks written on the margin. 

An invitation from the Museum to the State regents to attend 
the annual meeting on June 3rd, could not be generally accepted

I, however, had the pleasure of attending it and it was a privilege 
to be there and see for myself the work the ladies of the association 
have done for the honor of our State. I was entertained in the

Mrs. Hodges was escorted to the rostrum and spoke 
very interestly for a few moments on the -work being 
done. 

Mrs. Williams was requested to read a short history 
of the Confederate Museum. Suggestion was made by 
the President to place a North Carolina flag over the 
mantel in the N. C. room. 

Motion was made by Mrs. Tyree, of Durham that 
the flag be made of silk. Carried. 

Mrs. Cotton made a motion that the President draw 
from the sinking fund for the next two years enough 
money to purchase this flag. Mrs. Marshall Williams, 
our well known artist, offered to paint free of charge, 
North Carolina's Coat of Arms for the same room. A 
rising vote of thanks was given her.

Report of the Henry L. Wyatt Monument Com-

HENRY L. WYATT MONUMENT REPORT 
Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Another year's work has drawn to a close and again we come to 
report to you the progress made in the particular phase of work 
that you have given unto our care and keeping, that of honoring 
our first Confederate hero, Henry L. Wyatt. 

We, the U. D. C. and the Legislative committee that you and 
State have chosen to perfect this work, have worked with all our 
might, and given to it the best of our thoughts and service. With 
this our object in view, that the results of this work should be 
something that would be an honor to our State and Confederacy. 
Something that our army of grey jackets, yet with us, and, even 
were it possible, the noble comrades that have crossed over the 
river, could look down and see we honor our Confederates with the 
very best we have to give. 

Three times during the past twelve months our committees 
have met together to discuss and plan for the completion of this 
work. It has been a pleasure and a rare privilege to have the gifted 
men of the Legislative committee to work with us, and we feel in- 
debted to them for the interest shown in this undertaking and for 
their valuable assistance. 

The entire amount of our fund now is $2,231.62, the following 
chapters having contributed this year: Leonidas Polk, Chapel Hill » 
Graham, Graham; Cape Fear, Wilmington; Anson, Wadesboro; Junius 
Daniels, Weldon; Geo. Singletary, Greenville; Thomas Rumn, Golds- 
boro; Cleveland Guards, Shelby; Henry Wyatt, Selma. 

Besides the chapters that have contributed, there are quite a 
number of men and women, who have proven their patriotism by 
giving most liberally to this cause, and we most heartily appreciate 
this personal interest. 

Knowing so well of what our State is capable, we decided not 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 73 



to wait until our entire amount was safely lodged in our treasury, 
but to give the commission for the monument, feeling sure that ere 
it is completed we will have every dollar. 

At our first committee meeting Mr. John Hinsdale, Jr., was ap- 
pointed our Secretary and he has most faithfully filled this office, 
and we fully appreciate the amount of work he has done for us. 

By the suggestion of Mrs. Allison Hodges of Richmond, and the 
untiring efforts of Mr. Hinsdale, we have secured a Sculptor of 
National reputation to make this monument. We have given the 
commission to Sir Moses Ezekiel, a Virginian by birth, a V. M. I- 
boy that left that college to go out and fight for our Confederacy 
His works of art adorn many foreign palaces. We have in our 
Southland some of his work but not in our State. 

As the music of the Masters is but the echo of the music of 
their souls, so is the picture or the statue of an artist but the 
embodiment of all the music and the poetry of his soul. 

When the monument is completed we feel that it will not be 
only cold metal and stone, but will be a work of tender sentiment 
and love. Something fit to stand for bravery and true worth, a 
beacon to the youths of our land, beckoning them on to patriotism. 
We can truly say this work of ours has been a work of pleasure 
love and sentiment, now for the realization of our fond hopes we 
have turned our hearts, work over to a Confederate, who gave his 
service for our Southland. Who could more fittingly shape and 
mould our love of brave youth and true worth into something 
beautiful and lasting. Something we can be proud to show to the 
whole world and they can feel that love inspired it. 

We trust now that ere this Convention closes we can raise the 
amount needed to complete our fund, for here in dear old Rocky 
Mount we have heard so much of Henry Wyatt. 

We have been entertained in the homes of his comrades, we 
have had the honor of looking into the faces of two of the men who 
were with Wyatt when he fell, Capt. John Thorpe and Mr. Bob 
Ricks. These men are real live heroes, heroes of Bethel and many 
years of war and privation. 

Let it be said that it was here we completed the amount needed 
to erect a monument to the Edgecombe county boy who was the 
first to give his life for our Confederacy.

74 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

Since our G nvcution in October, the Wyatt Monument Com- 
mittee has met, at. I seen fit to withdraw the commission for our 
monument from ^>.r loses Ezekiel. 

This was done because his contract required several years in 
which to complete his .vork. Every one thought it wiser to give it 
to some one who could assure us of the early completion. 

The contract has been signed and the work given to Gutyon 
Borghins, of New York. 

He is one of our foremost American sculptors, he has work in 
the Metropolitan Art Museum, a bust of Lincoln in the Capitol at 
Washington, besides numerous other pieces of work that are 
recognized amount; the best. 

The contract assures us the Wyatt monument will be completed 
in the year 1911.

Miss Etheredge called for pledges to finish out the 
necessary amount. Many chapters responded. 

Report by Miss Rebecca Cameron from the Histori- 
cal Committee read and resolutions presented. 

HISTORICAL REPORT 

The Historian duly regrets the unintentional injustice done the 
Historian ol the J. E. B. Stuart Chapter, of Fayetteville, by the 
omission of my mention ol the two excellent contributions sent by 
her, viz: 1. War Days in Fayetteville. 2. Speech of Mr. J. H- 
Currie, on Capt. McCullers. Both ol then were along the lines 
specially desired for historical papers. 

Also the omission just discovered ol a historical paper sent 
by the Historian of the Monroe chapter, Mis? Margie Williamson 
who says Union ounty sent 11 companies, all officered by her own 
sons, to the front i: the first two years of the war. A splendid re- 
cord truly. 

My only apology lor omitting to mention these papers, in my 
report is that they came at a time of great distress and anxiety and 
one was mislaid, the others overlooked.

Motion was made by Mrs. Moffitt "that Legislature 
be petitioned for a fire proof building for the preserva- 
tion of all papers," an i amended by Mrs. Josephus 
Daniels to be Historical Building only. However the 
President ruled out the resolution as being unconstitu- 
tional. 

Motion made by Mrs. London, "that the Legislature 
be asked to provide a fire proof place in which to pre- 
serve our Confederate Records and Relics." Carried. 

Mrs. Williams then appointed Chairman for Eastern 
Section, Mrs. Martin Willard; for Western Section, Mrs. 
Dalton, for the Old Soldiers' Home Committee. Pur-

Lee Smith and Mrs. J. O. Litchford, of Raleigh. 

Report on the Homes for Veterans, Wives and 
Widows, read by the Chairman, Mrs. Hunter Smith,

HOME FOR WIVES AND WIDOWS 

Madam President, Daughters of the Confedekacy: 

At the Convention held ia Goldsboro there was a motion made 
and unanimously adopted, to build a Home for the Wives and 
Widows of Veterans to be added as "annex" to the Soldier's Home 
in Raleigh. As Chairman oi this committtee L have not been able to 
give this great cause the personal attention I would have liked but 
hope with the coming year to see the fruit ol our labors. 

I have met with many expressions ot hearty and cordial en- 
dorsement, and now all that is needed is the active co-operation of 
our people ts make this a very great benefit to the entire State. For 
this Home is an immediate iif jessity, and as the late lamented and 
beloved North Carolinian, v. ho has just passed to Glory Land, Maj, 
B. F. Dixon, said, "He considered it one ot the greatest needs of the 
State, and in his opinion a Home could be erected for five thousand 
dollars, that would be sufficient for the present." 

We shall appeal to the next Legislature tor an appropriation 
for this Home, and with the co-operation of the chapters and 



76 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

Veterans, we feel that those who suffered and endured at the rear 
while their loved ones went to the front, shall be given food and 
shelter in their declining years. 

We want to thank the chapters that have already contributed to 
this great cause. 

Madam President, and Daughters of the Bethel Heroes Chapter, 
it is doubly pleasant to be permitted to come within the borders of 
yeur progressive city and report your Chapter — Bethel Heroes — the 
Banner Chapter of the State, having paid the largest pledge for the 
Home for Wives and Widows, $100.00. May this chapter be an in- 
spiration to us all. and I hope that every hour of our stay among 
you will be crowded with pleasure, which will ripen at length into 
precious memories. 

I have written numerous personal letters. I have written a 
letter to every Chapter President in the State hoping to receive a 
contribution from every chapter the coming year. 

It is very gratifying to the committee to see that the leading 
newspapers of the State are advocating this great cause.

Confederate Soldiers, to be added as an Annex to the Soldiers Home 
in the city of Raleigh. 

Second. That we memorialize the Legislature of North Caro- 
lina at its coming Session, and ask that an appropriation be made

Home. 

Reports on the Jefferson Davis Home Association

REPORT OF JEFFERSON DAVIS HOME ASSOCIATION 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It is with regret that the Chairman of the Jefferson Davis Home 
Association Committee must report so few names and "dollars" se- 
cured for the Association; but at the same time she recognizes the 
fact that several chapters had already taken chapter memberships" 
and further, they have work on hand which must be completed be- 
fore anything else is undertaken. 

Soon after my appointment on this committee I wrote each one 
associated with me in the work, asking her co-operation. I have 
also sent letters to every chapter president, asking her help in in- 
teresting her members and in securing names among them for our 
association. Many have written me, expressing their interest and 
promising to help in the work later. 

I have received and forwarded to the Treasurer the following 
amounts, with the names to whom certificates of membership were 
to be sent: 

Miss Julia James, Wilmington $1.00 

Mrs. John. G. Rankin, " 1.00 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 79 



Mrs. Jane De Rosset " 1.00

REPORT ENDOWMENT FOR N. C. ROOM 



At our last Convention held in Wilmington, Mrs. J. A. Hodges, 
of Richmond, made an appeal for an Endowment Fund of $2000.00 
for our North Carolina Room in Richmond. The Convention voted 
for this to be the special work for the ensuing year. As your 
Chairman of this Committee, I wish to thank my able assistants, 
Mrs. R. C. Costner, of Lincolnton; Mrs. W. J. Mongomery, Concord; 
Mrs. C. F. Harvey, Kinston; and Miss Sue Tate, of Morganton. Our 
Treasurer, Mrs. Eugene Little, reports $537.72 received. While we 
are very grateful for this amount, many of the chapters have not 
responded. We wish to emphasize our appreciation of the large 
donation of the Confederate Grays Chapter, of Mount Olive, which, 
under the auspices of Mrs. Brazeale, raised $28.00, by far the largest 
amount raised by any chapter. The Goldsboro Chapter deserves 
special thanks, along with the generous check of the U. C. V. of 
Charlotte, and the donation of General Julian S. Carr. 

This is important work, and we hope next year the entire 
Division will be aroused to the necessity of this Endowment Fund. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. M. McD. WILLIAMS, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF CHILDREN CHAPTERS 



Because the children of today are the hope and power of to- 
morrow, we believe that the training and education of the children 
of North Carolina in Confederate principles and history is the most 



80 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 



important work that we as Daughters of the Confederacy can do. 

Your committee has issued a circular letter to every chapter 
and every leader in the State seeking to obtain facts of the work 
that has been done, a history of the organization of the chapters 
that have ever existed, as well as a sketch of the Confederate per- 
son for whom named. The circular also sought the name o| aiA 
interested person who might take up the work in the towns whe/e 
chapters have never existed. Your chairman has been delighted 
with the cordial, helpful replies to this appeal. 

A conference of presidents and leaders, this morning, was an 

enthusiastic success, and we believe it will further the work in the 

State, for the discussions concerned various interesting and helpful 

phases and suggestions for conducting and organizing the children. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MAUDE F. FINGER. 



REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEE ON DEPT. OF 
HISTORY AND ARCHIVES 



Madam President: 

Your committee begs to report as follows: 

The department of History and Archives is already established 
under the title of The Historical Commission, and is doing wise and 
valuable work. 

It remains now for the State of North Carolina to erect a 
suitable fireproof building for the safe guarding of these treasures 
snatched from the destroying hand of time, and preserving them 
for those who are to inherit the ages gone before. 

To this end we respectfully suggest the passing of the following 
resolution unanimously: 

Resolved, that we, the North Carolina Division of the United 
Daughters of the Confederacy, in Convention assembled, do un- 
animously, and earnestly beseech the honorable, the Legislature of 
the State of North Carolina, at its next session, to pass a bill for the 
immediate erection of a safe, commodious and handsome fireproof 
building, to be used for the storage and preservation of all Histori- 
cal material, documents, records, papers, letters, mss., books, news- 
papers, maps, prints and everything relative to the domain of 
History in all its bearings and branches. 

And we also beg that different funds do and shall be provided 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 81 



in said bill to build such a house as will set forth the pride and 
dignity of its purpose and represent in its way the splendor of 
North Carolina History. 

Your committee would also urge that the President or Cor- 
responding Secretary, of each chapter in the Division, either see 
personally, or writ to the Senator and Represenative of her dis- 
trict and county and beg them to vote for the passage of this bill. 

United action will accomplish it without a doubt, as all the 
other patriotic organizations in the State are working with the 
Historical commission to secure this building. Fer the erection of 
which we say: God speed the day! 

Respectfully submitted, 

REBECCA CAMERON, 

Chairman.

Remarks — Memorial Day was fittingly observed in Henderson. 
It was an occasion made memorable in more ways than the ordinary 
observance of this hallowed day by speeeh making, pageantry of 
soldiers and civilians, and decorating the graves of the dead. The 
ceremony of laying the corner stone of the Confederate Monument 
by the Grand Lodge of Masons, made the occasion one long to be 
remembered. Senator Lee S. Overman delivered a magnificent ad- 
dress, after which lunch was served to the Veterans and their 
friends. In the evening, a delightful public reception was given 
Senator Overman in the Croatan Club, by the Club members, the 
citizens of Vance county, the Daughters of the Confederacy, and 
the Confederate Veterrns. We are proud to make this report, that 
the entire amount of money has been pledged for the monument, 
and a thirty-five hundred dollar monument will be unveiled on 
November 10, 1910, with elaborate exercises, and with Gov. W. W- 
Kitchin and Gen. Julian S. Carr, orators of the day. A banquet for 
Veterans and visitors will follow the unveiling. Our every effort 
for two years has been for this monument. A cause very near and 
dear to our hearts.

Remarks— The year 1910 has been marked by the retirement 
from active work of Mrs. Stonewall Jackson and Mrs. Rufns Bar- 
ringer our organizers and life president and vice president; the 
securing of a safety box for the preservation of historical papers 
and data; an awakening and deeper interest in State and General U. 
D. C. projects; and most important of all a keen interest in local 
Confederate History, is resulting in historic spots, being suitably 
marked. The first of which has been the Confederate Navy Yard, 
62-65, marked with large iron navy shield surmounted by anchors 
and cord.

Our principal efforts the present year have been directed to- 
wards raising funds for a Confederate Monument. We have re- 
sponded to calls for contributions from Chapters who are building 
monuments. Memorial Day exercises were quite a success. Judge 
Buxton, of Winston, delivered a splendid address. After exercises 
at cemetery, we served dinner to about 300 Veterans. On January 
19th, Lee's birthday, we had appropriate exercises. 

Our Chapter has sustained a heavy loss this year, by reason of 
the deaths of Mrs. J. J. Harney, 2nd Vice President and charter 
member, and Mrs. Sutherland, who took an active interest in all 
that pertained to the welfare of our Chapter. Both are greatly 
missed.

On May 10th we presented five crosses, three of which were to 
replace those that had been lost. 

We gave one Veteran $20.U0, another $2.00, a third $1.35. We 
sent $1.00 to the Louisburg Chapter for their monument and gave 
$60.00 to the monument for the students of 1861, at Chapel Hill, of 
which $15.00 was the memorial of a friend to our late Corresponding 
Secretary, and $5.00 a memorial to a freshman of the class of 1909, 
the only grandson of a Veteran. 

This money was raised wholly within the Chapter with no

Remarks— All our meetings of the year have been held in the 
"Julian S. Carr" Chapter room at the Y. M. C. A. building. We had 
a program arranged January the first, giving the Historical subjects, 
and Hostesses for the social half hour throughout the year. This 
we carried out in connection with our business meetings on the 2nd 
Tuesday in each month. Our membership is gradually increasing 
and financially we have had the "biggest" year in the history of our 
Chapter. Our best work, of which we are justly proud is the 
organization in January of our "Lee Jackson" Children's Chapter. 
Miss Tuck as leader and the children as officers. This bids fair to 
be one of the banner auxiliaries of our State. On Lee's birthday 
we ran our "penny collection" in all the Graded Schools in Durham, 
realizing $15.00. This being our plan to keep the U. D. C. before 
our children. From a moving picture benefit, given us we cleared 
$10,00, and in a "cake contest", our U. D. C. members who won 



98 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

prizes, donating same to our Chapter, we raised $15.00. 

All our pledges for the year have been met, including an in- 
crease of $5.00 to our State Normal Scholarship Fund and a dona- 
tion of $26.00 to the Confederate Museum in Richmond and $10.00 
to Chapel Hill monument. 

On the 10th of May we observed Memorial Day in the most 
elaborate way ever before in Durham. A half holiday was given 
by the city schools, many business houses closed during our ex- 
ercises and decorated in our colors. The Confederate Veterans of 
Webb Camp and neighboring counties, numbering two hundred, 
wearing the red or white carnations, provided for them by a friendi 
lined up with their Commander and Marshals in red and white re- 
galia, and were escorted by the Durham Military Company and 
band followed by Lee Jackson Children Chapter and hundreds of 
school children, (wearing white dresses, and red sashes) and 
Daughters, all marching to Maplewood Cemetery where our ex- 
ercises were held. Our speaker of the day was Durham's Confede- 
rate Veteran orator, Maj. W. A. Guthrie, who most elaborately, 
eloquently and pathetically delivered a fine address to a large 
assembly of people. After which the "Grand Master Mason" and 
Durham Lodge of Masons had most impressive services, and laid 
the corner stone in the base of our Confederate Monument, which 
we hope to soon erect over our fallen heroes' graves in Maplewood 
Cemetery. Forty nine Crosses of Honor were presented by the 
Chapter and presented by Elizabeth Davis Tyree and Matilda 
Bryant of the Children's Chapter. Many war songs were rendered 
by the school children and while the band played Dixie the two 
little girls placed our emblem, the ' Laurel Wreath," and a bunch of 
white carnations tied with the U. D. C. colors on the base of the 
monument. 

The Veterans fired the salute, while school children joined 
with the Daughters in placing Confederate Flags and flowers on 
each Veteran's grave. Vehicles were then provided by the Chapter 
members for the transportation of Veterans to their respective 
homes. Thus closing a day long to be remembered by all present. 
Best of all, we paid for our monument base in one day by selling 
souvenir '"Monument Tags," and hope before our next Convention 
to report our entire monument completed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. B. L TYREE, President.

Monthly meetings are held at the homes of Daughters, and it is 
found helpful to serve refreshments. We endeavor to fittingly 
observe the days especially set apart, besides honoring birthdays Of 
other loved heroes. 

Memorial Day was a glorious one with us. The band for the 
occasion was secured by the Jesse Barnes Camp of Veterans. An 
able address by Rev. J. C. Caldwell was followed by the annual 
dinner to several hundred Veterans and the usual exercises at the 
cemetery. The most beautiful feature being the marching of the 
graded school children around the Confederate monument — all 
carrying wreaths and garlands which they placed upon the mound 
of our Confederate dead, leaving it a vast bank of lovely flowers. 
We wish to have our Chapter perpetuate our custom of sending 
memorial wreaths whenever a dear old Veteran dies. 

This year our interest has chiefly centered in the Home for 
Wives and Widows of Veterans. With us are touching evidences 
of the need of such a noble provision. Two Veterans, infirm and 
greatly impoverished, are unwilling to leave their helpless old 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 101 



wives behind them, so they stoutly refuse to avail themselves of 
the comfortable refuge of the Soldiezs' Home. 

A Veteran, nearing the day when the bugle will sound "Taps" 
over his grave, was recently looking, with tears in his eyes, on an 
old soldier who was dressed in Confederate gray. He exclaimed 
with a sob, "I would be willing to give a thousand dollars for a 
suit like that to be buried in." Our Daughters could not resist the 
pathetic longing of his ioyal old heart, and such a suit was ordered. 
It has come, and he will have the pleasure of wearing it for awhile, 
and the pride of knowing that he will be laid to rest in it. 

We have had a most successful year. Seven new members 
enrolled, and a fine spirit of enthusiasm pervades our work. We 
are in a good financial condition after having responded to every 
demand made upon its in the name of the U. D. C.

We have responded to more calls than ever, and will have a 
nice sum to start our next year's work. We gave $50. CO to Wives 
and Widows Home, $25.00 to Chapel Hill Monument, $7.00 to Arling- 
ton, $1.00 to Franklin County Monument, $10.00 to Soldiers' Home- 
$10.00 for Normal Scholarship, $5.00 to N. C. room, Richmond, $25.- 
$75 for Grave Markers and $45.54 to charity, besides Chapter ex- 
penses. Our special work has been the compiling of a booklet, 
"War Days in Fayetteville," containing a picture of the first Con- 
federate monument erected in North Carolina, (Fayetteville 1867,) 
reminiseences of our women vividly recalling days of Sherman's 
raid, from which we realized a nice sum. It is the only book of 
local war history published by any North Carolina Chapter and has 
reached many states of the Union. We celebrated Lee-Jackson Day, 
Memorial Day and President Davis's birthday with orations and 
appropriate exercises, the military and citizens attending. On May 
10th we entertained 300 Veterans at dinner. The late Dr. B. F. 
Dixon was the orator, and Crosses of Honor were presented. The 
procession, headed by a band and both local military companies, 
was the largest ever seen here. The Children's Chapter always 
assist in our celebrations and the Veterans enjoy their stirring war 
songs. We gave substantial aid to many Veterans at Christmas and 
constantly during the year. A laurel wreath and Confederate flags 
are placed on the casket of every Veteran who dies and we have 
marked every Veteran's grave with a Confederate Star. A voting 
contest and moving picture benefit netted $136.00 Our museum is 
filled with many Confederate relics. At our meetings we have 
sketches of War Heroes and the Daughters pay loving tribute to 
their memory.

for by the Chicora and Averasboro Battle Chapters jointly. On last 
May 10th an eloquent address was delivered by Mr. E. S. Smith, of 
Lillington, Ode to the Confederate dead, and I'm a good old Rebel, 
were sung, the latter being most enthusiastically applauded by the 
Veterans present. One visiting Veteran said he had last seen the 
ground when taking part in the battle fought there in 1865. He 
located the very tree, under which he was cooking, on an old hoe, 
a corn-meal cake, when surprised by the yankees, his orders were 
to fall back very slowly, while protecting Johnson's retreat, so 
though very hungry, he had to leave his hoe-cake. Our Historian 
has prepared a history of the Chicora Monument, one of the first, if 
not the first erected in North Carolina. We furnished and take 
care of a room in Soldiers' Home, in Raleigh, sent as an Xmas 
present an Art Square from the Chapter, a picture from Mrs. Faison 
Hicks and a rug from Mrs. E. Lee, afterwards sent one of our 
members to the Home to find out all the needs of our room and 
forwarded, at once, to Mrs. Brooks $6.00, all she said was needed- 
We have sent wreaths and flags to be placed on the newly made 
graves of two Veterans — J. A. Green and W. J. Smith. This year 
we have lost one of our charter members, Mrs. David Smith. We

have at present 33 names on our roll, some have left our town but 
still pay their dues. Blanks for three new members are now in 
transit and two or three blanks sent out but not yet returned to our 
Recording Secretary.

was the orator of the day and a brass band. At 10 o'clock the band, 
followed by the old Soldiers, and Daughters of the Henry Wyatt 
Chapter as an escort to his excellency, marched to the town hall 
where the exercises were held. After a magnificent address by Gov. 
Kitchin, important talks were made by ex-Judge Graham, of Oxford, 
and Col. Robinson of Goldsboro. By the invaluable aid of our good 
citizens, we were able to give the old Soldiers a sumptuous dinner. 

The coming year we expect to turn much of our assistance to 
the support of the home for Confederate women, for we feel that no

Remarks— Since this was my first year to do active U. D. C. 
work, perhaps our report will not make as great a showing as form- 
erly. I accepted the presidency with fear and trembling in January 
1910. We have had a most harmonious year. I do not think any 
Chapter in the state has more earnest, loyal workers, and to them is 
due the success we have attained. All dues and taxes have been 
paid, and all celebration days observed. 

Although I was elected president just one week before January 
19th, we observed the day with fitting exercises. We served coffee 
and sandwiches to a number of Veterans. 

On May 10th we had our largest celebration. Appropriate 
exercises were held in the Hpera House, which was crowded. On 
this occasion we presented the Graded School with a splendid por- 
trait of Stonewall Jackson handsomely framed. Following the 
exercises in the Opera House we had exercises at the cemetery and 
decorated the old Soldiers' graves, after which we served a basket 
dinner to about 130 Veterans, which they voted as the best we have 
ever given. 

We celebrated June 3rd with appropriate exercises, after which 
we served lemonade. At all three celebrations we had splendid ad- 
dresses and good music. We bestowed Crosses of Honor on all 
three occasions — 18 in all. 

The Daughters acted as caterers at the annual reception given 



130 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

by the Commercial Club in February, from which they cleared 
$90.00. 

We gave our annual gold medal to the pupil of the graduating 
class of the Graded School, who wrote the best essay on "The 
Causes sf the Civil War.'. 

Recently, we took a penny collection in the schools for the 
Arlington and Shiloh monuments, by which we raised $5.00 for each 
monument at the Central Graded School in Gastonia, and $1.00 fo r 
each at the Dallas Graded School. 

We sent $5,00 to the North Carolina room at Richmond. We 
sent $15.00 to the Gastonia room at the Old Soldiers' Home in 
Raleigh. The Chapter gave $5.00 to the Chapel Hill monument, and 
$10.00 was raised ior this purpose by the committee, making $15.00 
in all. We took a Chapter certificate, $5 00, in the Jefferson Davis 
Memorial Home. We have answered all calls for money and aid 
from old soldiers. We gave to the Gastonia Library three silk flags, 
Confederate, State and National. 

All things considered we feel we have had a very good year.

CHILDREN'S CHAPTER REPORTS. 

No. 2-WASHINGTON GRAYS CHAPTER, WASHINGTON 
Madam President, Daughters and Children of the Confederacy: 

I congratulate myself that it is my delightful task to bear to 
you to-day, the hearty greetings of the Washington Grays Chap- 
ter, Children of the Confederacy and assure you that as the years go 
by we faint not nor grow weary in commemorating the brave deeds 
of a noble ancestry. We remember them most tenderly today, as 
they sleep. Our Chapter was organized by the late lamented and 
much beloved leader, Mrs. W. H. Call, in the year 1887, being the 
first organized in North Carolina, and the second in the entire south, 
Virginia leading with the first, North Carolina second. When 
organized it had only sixty-five members, but that number soon 
increased to one hundred. Mrs. Call was inspired to organize the 
Chapter not to perpetuate the memory of our noble ancestry by the 
recital of cruel wrongs, that occurred during the great civil strife, 
but free from the feelings of ill will and bitterness, untrammeled by 
prejudice and unfettered by bias, she saw the necessity of teaching 
to us the truth of history in its simplicity, in love and in peace- 
As some of you are aware, we have placed in the North Carolina 
room of the "White House" of the Confederacy, at Richmond, an 
oil portrait of General Bryan Grimes, costing about one hundred 
dollars. We have also placed a portrait of Mayor Thomas Sparrow 
in the room of the Historical society of N. C. in Raleigh, costing 
about one hundred dollars. Major Sparrow, after whom our Chap- 
ter was named, commanded the first company raised in Beaufort 
county. In 1905 we erected a beautiful monument to the memory 
of seventeen soldiers killed in 1862, in defence of Washington. This 
cost about one hundred and fifty dollars. We have disinterred a 
large number of soldiers and placed their remains in the Confede- 
rate plot in our city cemetery, and marked each grave with a marble 
slab. Another delightful labor which we have performed is contri- 
buting to the necessities of soldiers' iamilies.giving them timely and 
substantial aid. 

Of course we aid the Daughters ou Memorial Day, for we feel 



144 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

that they could not get along well without us, and we take great 
pleasure in rendering all the assistance we can. Our labors for the 
past year have not been so abundant as in former years, but we 
hope to turn over a new leaf and improve the coming year, under 
the leadership of Mrs. G. C. Bragaw. 

Respectfully submitted, 
WASHINGTON GRAYS CHAPTER, 
ELIZABETH TAYLOR, Sec. 



No. 4-JANE HUGHES CHAPTER, NEW BERNE 

This Chapter, auxiliary to the New Bern Chapter, has a mem- 
bership of one hundred. Fourteen new members have been added 
during the year. They meet regularly on the tenth of each month 
and always unite with the Daughters on celebration days. 

They gave their annual sweet pea show in June, from which 
they realized twenty-eight dollars and forty cents. 

They have sent flowers to a Veteran's funeral, placed a copy of 
"Heroes in Gray" in the New Bern public library, sent $4.40 to the 
Arlington momument, $5.00 to Chapel Hill monument, and $5.00 
to Jefferson Davis Home Association. They are now planning a 
box for the Soldiers' Home at Raleigh.

The George Davis Children's Chapter is in good condition. We

has joined the Cape Fear Chapter, and several others will do so in

money for the year's work. But we are planning a Halloween 
party, and several entertainments during the winter. We have

promised ten dollars to the Chapel Hill monument, and hope soon 
to be prepared to respond to other calls. The children took part in 
Memorial exercises on May 10th. 

I have a book in which I register the children's applications.

No. 6— J. D. MOORE CHAPTER, GASTONIA 

The J. D. Moore Chapter, Children of the Confederacy, is still

continued illness of their leader, they have been unable to do any 
work during the year, but are looking forward to making much 
better progress along all lines the coming year. 

The greatest ambition is to aid in the erection of the Confede-

have on hand $257.21.

Leader. 



No. 7-FRANK BENNETT CHAPTER, WADESBORO 

Greetings from the Frank Bennett Chapter! This second year 
of our existence has been one of interest and progress. Our mem- 
bership is 54, with an average attendance of 23-30 at our regular 
meetings. From a patriotic entertainment, Lee-Jackson Day 
January 19th, we realized $20.00 We had readings on the life ot 
Jefferson Davis, in commemoration of his birthday. June 3rd. 

Appropriate exercises were held Memorial Day, May 10th, in 
which the children took the leading part. Over fifty Confederate 
soldiers are buried in the Wadesboro cemetery. "The Roll Call of 
the Dead" was called by one of the Veterans, Mr. E. F. Fenton, and 
in response to each name, a short sketch of the soldier was read by 
one of the children. Each grave is assigned to a member of the 
Chapter for care and decoration. Twelve graves, already marked by 
Anson Chapter, and for whom there is no one to care, have been 
refilled and cradled with beautiful white brick and the Frank

No. 8— DIXIE LEE CHAPTER, TARBORO 

The Dixie Lee Chapter is still a most energetic and loyal little 
people, always doing promptly and well any and everything their 
hands find to do. 

Quite a number of our membeis are away this year in the 
different colleges, this makes it hard to keep the fire of patriotism 
kindled. Our work varies little, and is chiefly memorial. We 
always take part in the celebration of Memorial Day, of Gen. Lee's 
birthday, and President Davis's, and keep the birthday of our own 
honored William Dorsey Pender. This year our work has been 
that of raising funds to erect a fitting memorial to Henry L. Wyatt. 
Our efforts have been crowned with success, and in October we

No. 12- ANNIE K. KYLE CHAPTER, FAYETTEVILLE 

Greetings from the Annie K. Kyle Chapter: We herewith re- 
port a satisfactory work for the year just closing The Chapter 
enjoys an enrollment of fifty members, whose loyalty to the cause 
is gratifying. 

The regular monthly meetings are held on the first Saturday 
morning of each month, and are well attended. An efficient corps 
of little officers preside with graceful ability. 

A varied program is arranged, consisting of the Confederate 
catechism, music, poems, and other items of war history. As no 
dues are imposed, a birthday offering is received, thus adding pen- 
nies to the floating fund. At our benefit tendered, the Chapter 
realized $18.00 We contributed $5.00 to the Soldier's Home, and 
$5.00 to the Wives and Widows, besides donating a box of substan- 
tial cheer and other gifts during Christmas tide to needy Veterans. 

Lee's birthday was celebrated with suitable exercises in which 
the Chapter took prominent part. And the 3rd of June was ap- 
propriately remembered. 

On May 10th, the Chapter formed a long line of inarch to 
beautiful Cross Creek cemetery, where each member bore and placed 
on the grave of a Confederate soldier a garland of roses, thus perpe- 
tuating a service of loving memory of those who passed over and 
whose "sun set while it was yet day." 

The Chapter is arranging for greater things the coming year. 

MISS KATE MATTHEWS, 

Leader. 



No. 14- W. G. QUAKENBUSH CHAPTER, LAURINBURG 

The W. G. Quakenbush Children's Chapter was organized 1909, 
and named after a man who though too young to fight in the war^ 
still gave his life to the children of our Confederate soldiers. His 
life work was to educate the children regardless of remuneration. 
Our town has a beautiful monumeni to his memory, but the children 
wanted to commemorate his work by giving his name to their 
Chapter. It was reported at the last convention as numbering 25, 
it is now 39 in number, and with bright prospects, and a band of en- 
thusiastic children. Its work as cut out for the ensuing year is to 



148 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

share in the endowment of a fund for the education of some 
soldier's child. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. T. T. COVINGTON, 

Leader. 



No. 15— ANNIE LEE CHAPTER, LITTLETON 

The Annie Lee Chapter is still a loyal little band. This year 
has been rather unfortunate for them on account of two long spells 
of sickness in their leader's family, which necessitated fewer meet- 
ings, as the meetings are held in her home, but sympathy for their 
leader in her trouble seem to unite them in a closer bond of love 
which was clearly demonstated in their many attentions they paid 
her in their Chapter's name. At Christmas they presented her a U. 
D. C. badge with their love. 

They have planted flowers and put the graves of each soldier 
buried in the town cemetery in order. 

Added much to Memorial Day exercises with songs and recita- 
tions. Helped the Daughters in an entertainment for Shiloh. Gave 
one dollar for Shiloh monument. Gave a reception in honor of 
Mrs. F. M. Williams, when she visited our town. Who inspired 
them with much iuterest by a very interesting talk. Are still work- 
ing to mark the graves of all soldiers buried in town. 
Respectfully submitted, 
BESSIE LEE WIGGINS CAWTHORNE, 

Leader. 



ROCKINGHAM VOLUNTEERS CHAPTER, REIDSVILLE 

This Chapter organized June 5th, 1910 under the leadership of 
Miss Emma McKinney and Mrs. R. G. Gladstone, with an enroll- 
ment of thirty- three members. They formed part of our procession 
on June. 29th, Reidsville's greatest day, and decorated the iron 
railing at the base of our monument. Monthly meetings are held at 
homes of members. 

MRS. E. F. HALL, 

President.

LEE-JABKSON CHAPTER, DURHAM 

The Lee-Jackson Chapter, Children of the Confederacy, auxil- 
iary to Julian S. Carr Chapter, was re-organized March 12, 1910, and 
is now composed of twenty-five active members. 

The meetings are held once a month, in the house of some 
member. They are called to order by the President and the 
Secretary calls the roll to which the members answer with the 
names of famous battles, Southern heroes, or leading generals, 
whichever the leader requests. Special States are sometimes 
studied, recitations given, papers read and occasionally some 
patriotic contest is given. Often a Veteran is asked to talk to the 
Chapter, and this always creates much interest and patriotism. The 
meeting closes with a short social feature and refreshments are 
always served. 

The Auxiliary took part in the Memorial exercises on May 10. 
They gave $71.65 to the Durham Confederate monument fund and 
are now making plans for raising more money. 

Since the reorganization of our Chapter, Mayor Guthrie, one of 
Durham's most prominent citizens, and a Veteran, presented the 
Chapter with a framed picture of General Lee, beneath which is his 
farewell address to his army. We have also been presented with a 
gavel, hand carved by Mr. Christian, of Rocky Mount. Especially 
is this appropriate for our Chapter, as it has a picture of General 
Lee on one side and of General Jackson on the other. We feel 
deeply indebted for both of these beautiful gifts. 

GLADYS GORMAN, President, 
MABEL READE TUCK, 

Leader. 



THOMAS GARRETT CHAPTER, WINDSOR 

The Thos. Garrett Children Chapter has about fifteen members 
and meets each month just previous to the meeting of the mother 
Chapter. It has a full set of officers, with Miss Willie Pugh as 
leader, and is opened with appropriate exercises. The children 
give a penny each, a month, and once a year as many pennies as 
they are old. They take part in all celebrations with the mother 
Chapter. 

They meet alphabetically, each little hostess serving light re- 



150 Minutes of Fourteenth Annual Convention 

freshments, and at each meeting some child recites or reads some- 
thing concerning the Confederacy. They are learning the Confede- 
rate songs, and hope soon to have a good paper on the war record 
of Thos. Garrett, for whom their Chapter is named. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. C. J. SAWYER, 
Kec-Sec. Francis W. Bird Chapter. 



ANNIE D. KENAN CHAPTER, KENANSVILLE 

The Annie D. Kenan Chapter has a membership of ten earnest 
little workers. Their chief work is directed to the building of the 
monument in their county. 

MRS. H. D. WILLIAMS,

RICHARDSON MALLETT CHAPTER, CHAPEL HILL 

The Richardson Mallett Chapter, Auxiliary to the Leonidas 
Polk Chapter of Chapel Hill, was organized by Misses Blanche 
Pickard and Mary Pritchard, July 15th, 1910. There were enrolled 
twenty two members who are enthusiastic and wide-awake. They 
have monthly meetings with a full set of officers, who conduct their 
meetings with forms and responsibilities of business. 

They hope soon to add to the interest of their meetings by 
having a literary program that will be in keeping with the great 
cause they commemorate 

Some members of their Chapter assisted their mother Chapter 
in getting up and giving a play recently, for the benefit of the Boy- 
Soldier Monument, that we hope soon to see erected in our midst, 
in memory of the boys who so willingly laid down their books and 
went to fight for their country. Mother Chapter, in return for what 
they did, gave them $15.00 of the amount gotton from the play. 
The principal work of the Chapter for the coming year shall be that 
of raising funds to aid the erecting of the Boy-Soldier Monument. 
They have begun this desired amount with$15.00 as the first deposit. 

Before they were organized, they assisted the Leonidas Polk 
Chapter with the Veterans' dinner the 10th of May. Too, they were 
a feature of the day with their red and white badges, wreaths and 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 151 



flowers, when they marched in a body to the cemetery, there cover- 
ing the graves of the Confederates with flowers, and singing songs 
to their memory. 

Respectfully submitted,

THINGS TO BE REMEMBERED 



chapter officers will please study 

Chapter presidents will remember that all taxes, both State and 
General, must be paid to the State Treasurer before votes can be 
counted in Convention. All members must also be registered. Have 
your Chapter treasurer write to State Treasurer in September and 
compare members tax paid, then no mistakes will be made. 

All Chapter registrars are required bySeptember 15th to send to 
State registrar a list of members, giving death, marriages and re- 
movals, so that Chapter and State books will agree. 

All monies for whatsoever cause must be sent to State Treasur- 
er, Mrs. Kobert Kornegay, so the State will get credit for it. 

The election of Chapter officers must be held at the November 
meeting, and a list sent at once to the State Recording Secretary, 
Mrs. Thad Thrash. 

More attention should be paid to the proper filling out of Cross 
of Honor blanks. Remember that all application blanks must be 
filled out and signed in ink by two Veteran endorsers, giving 
company and regiment of each. The applications must be arranged 
in alphabetical order, and copied alphabetically on the three record 
sheets, being sure to also give company and regiment of endorsers. 
Send no money except by postorfice order made out to Mrs. L. H. 
Raines, Savannah, Ga Do not fail to enclose stamps for State Re- 
corder to use in forwarding papers. Close attention to these rules 
will prevent the sending back of papers for correction. The time 
of awarding Crosses is extended to 1912. 

Be sure and notify Mrs. H. L. Riggins, Winston, in September 
of the number of delegates you will send to the Convention in 
October, 1911.

iMrs. Williams then gave us the greatest honor the 
North Carolina Division has ever had, an introduction 
to Mrs. Cornelia Branch Stone, ex-president of the 
General Division, United Daughters of the Confeder- 
acy, the most highly honored woman of our Southern 
land. 

Report of the President was then read. 

PRESIDENT'S REPORT 

After another year of arduons, but pleasant, work for the good of 
the division, I bring to you an account of my stewardship as your 
president and come also to tell you of the work done in the Divi- 
sion and to make some suggestions, which after most careful thought 
and study seem to me necessary for the good of our work. 

The year just finished has been the busiest within my knowledge 
as a Daughter. To the work I have given all mv energy and atten- 
tion. Many questions and opinions have been asked and to all the 
best answers given as far as lay in my conception of the lav/, after 
giving to each special consideration. These decisions may not 
have coincided with the opinions of all, but they were the best 
constructions that your president could give, after much thought on 
each separate question. 

Never before have the duties of the office been so heavy, nor 
the expenses so great. Letters have been more than double other 
years. The new law, made at the Little Rock convention, requir- 
ing all communications and printed matter to pass through the 
hands of the State President instead of being sent direct to chap- 
ters, while a most excellent one in many respects, causes very 
much greater expense to the Division. 

The interest in all work, whether General, State or chapters 
has been greater than heretofore.There have been four new chapters 



12 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

added to our roll since last we met, viz: Harnett at Lilhngton, 
Transylvania at Brevard, McDowell at Marion, and Wilkes Valley 
Guards at North Wilkesboro, also two new Children's Chapters, the 
Thomasyille Blues at Thomasville and the Rocky Mount Standard 
Bearers at Rocky Mount. I would feel that justice were not done 
the new chapters at Breyard, Marion and North Wilkesboro did I 
fail to give them special mention for having done, what has never 
occurred before in the history of the Division, and that is that in 
ordering their charters they also sent in check to cover taxes and 
U. D. C. certificates. 

Just here would I call the special attention of chapter presi- 
dents to the fact that it is required that every daughter be given one 
of these U. D. C. certificates by the chapter. Most new members 
are receiving them, but it is very much to be doubted if all old ones 
are supplied. This is a matter that should be inquired into by 
every chapter. 

It is with regret that I must report the disbanding and cancell- 
ing of the charters of four chapters in the Division. Of these? 
three have been so for several years, but the hope has been cherished 
that they might be revived. These four chapters are; the Wm. A. 
Closs, Henderson; Theodore Hasseil, Williamston; Knott's Island* 
Woodleigh; and Mt. Zion, Cornelius. Thus our revised roll shows 
88 U. D. C. chapters and 37 children's chapters in the Division. 

The work of the different officers and committees call for special 
praise, for they have all given time, thought and energy to their 
different works. 

Shortly after the close of the last convention your president 
entered into correspondence with the Registrar General, relative to 
the manner in which she wished the state records sent her, with the 
result that a special lot of blanks giving the described dates, was 
gotten out for the use of the state registrar. Mrs. Davis at once 
began the work of making a complete and correct copy of every 
name registered upon the Division books, and early in the spring 
this record was sent to the Registrar General. A fine work most 
thoroughly done. 

The Cross of Honor Record book which was ordered several 
years ago being full, your president ordered a duplicate from the 
same firm, for which, however, they insisted on charging $11.00 
against $9.00 the time before. While on a visit to Atlanta Mrs. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 13 

Creasy made a copy of several hundred veterans names who had 
obtained Crosses prior to the establishing of the office of Recorder 
of Crosses. It is to be regretted that North Carolina has not a com- 
plete record of all these names. Chapters are especially urged to 
bear in mind the fact that there is only one more year in which 
these Crosses can be awarded to veterans or their descendents, so 
every exertion should be made to see that no one desiring a Cross 
fails to secure it at once. 

Chapters are earnestly requested to send in their state and 
general taxes and their $1.00 to the Sinking Fund by March 1st of 
each year. Bills for stationery and minutes are in the treasurer's 
hands by that time and she should have the funds to meet them. 
Besides, it adds to postage bills when the treasurer and president 
have to write many letters to get your taxes. Many chapters pay 
no attention to the law of $1.00 each to be paid to the Sinking fund. 
This year only about half of the chapters having sent it in. Please 
notice this particularly. 

Your president would call attention of chapters to the fact that 
the Keystone is the organ of the North Carolina Division, and one 
copy at least should be taken by every chapter and the North Caro- 
lina report read at each meeting. Mrs. Gordon Finger has proven 
herself most efficient as our state manager and has endeavored 
each month to give a brief summary of the work. The very small 
cost of the Keystone, and the great good to be derived from read- 
ing it should make it a most popular paper among Daughters. 

Working in conjunction with Mrs. Marshall Williams chairman of 
the Endowment Fund Committee, Mrs. Latta Johnson, regent of 
the North Carolina Room in Richmond endeavored to secure an 
appropriation from the Legislature of $1000 for that endowment. 
In this however they were not successful, but did succeed in hav- 
ing the amount raised from $100 yearly to $200. 

Mrs. London has worked heroically for the Boy Soldier Monu- 
ment at Chapel Hill, and the Alumni of the University last June 
pledged themselves to aid us in raising the fund necessary for 
this work 

Miss Etheredge has completed the fund for the Wyatt Monument. 
When the small amount was needed to secure the $2500 from the 
State, she personally borrowed the amount, which your president 
ordered refunded her, when the interest on the money in the hands 
of the state treasurer fell due. 



14 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

Mrs. Moffett has by no means let the Memorial Arch drop and 
will tell you her ideas and plans to complete this work. 

The Home for Wives and Widows was most ably placed before 
the legislature by Mrs. Hunter Smith and her committee but there 
was not money in the treasury that could be appropriated for this 
cause. 

Our Educational work is still in a most flourishing condition. 
The same three young ladies were this year returned to the State 
Normal at Greensboro.after consultation with Dr. Foust, and twelve 
other scholarships of free tuition are awarded by various schools, 
and colleges in the state. The cost of living being so high, the 
expenses at the Normal have been raised $25 for each young lady, 
so it is incumbent on these chapters, who have not yet contributed 
to this fund to do so at once. Your treasurer must meet these 
bills at stated times during the year, so that the amounts given for 
this purpose should be sent in early- 

In obedience to your commands at Rocky Mount your president 
in the spring wrote to the American Flag Company relative to the 
state flag to be placed in the North Carolina Room in Richmond 
and on receiving samples of silk, submitted them to several Daugh- 
ters, in whose knowledge of such matters she had perfect confi- 
dence. The flag was later placed in the hands of Mrs. Latta Johns- 
ton for the Richmond room. 

The Soldiers Home has been well looked after by Mrs. M. S. 
Willard, Mrs. D. A. Garrison of this Committee and Mrs. Josephus 
Daniels of Purchasing Committee. 

As far as can be ascertained five monuments have been 
unveiled this year. One at Henderson by the Vance County 
chapter, one at Elizabeth City by the D. H. Hill chapter, one at 
Ashboro by the Randolph chapter, a very handsome drinking 
fountain at Lincolnton by the Wallace Reinhardt chapter, Children 
of the Confederacy, and one to Hon. George Davis, Attorney Gen- 
eral of the Confederate States at Wilmington. It was the privilege 
and pleasure of your president to be present on both the latter 
occasions, also to speak to the Cape Fear chapter at their celebra- 
tion of "Shiloh Day". As soon as your president learned of the 
date set for the unveiling of the George Davis monument she 
wrote to each of her executive committee, asking their opinion 
regarding placing a wreath on the Monument for the Division as 
well as a suggestion as to cost of same. As a result of these letters 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 15 

a very beautiful wreath was placed at the base of the monument, 
aud later taken to Mr. Davis' grave. Scotland chapter, Laurinburg 
has also completed their monument. 

During the summer an appeal was made to your president for 
North Carolina to contribute to a testimonial for Mrs. Raines, our 
Custodian of Crosses, and the matter was placed in the hands of 
Mrs. Creasy with very fine results It is but right Mrs. Rains' 
great work should bs recognized for it has been most stupenduous, 
Out of dreadful cinoj his she brougiit the most beautiful order, 
and has recorded in books the name and record of every man ever 
receiving a Cross of Honor. This has been a work of love done 
without any pay whatever. 

At the old Hugunot Springs, Virginia is a grayeyard, where 
sleeps many a North Carolina soldier. The sacred place has been 
deeded to the Richmond chapter, who have put it in order, and are 
trying to place an iron fence around it. The appeal comes to us, to 
aid in thus protecting the graves of our dead heroes. Dauhgters of 
North Carolina be true to your own and let not this appeal go un- 
heeded. Send your contributions to your State Treasurer. 

Time and again have come protests against that miserable design 
for the monument to the Women of the Confederacy by Miss Kin- 
ney. North Carolina Daughters need never fear that this piece of 
statuary, an outrage to our noble mothers, as well as to our heroic 
fathers, will ever rise upon our soil. Better, far better, will be the 
handsome dormitory upon the State Normal grounds at Greensboro, 
for which our last Legislature appropriated $25,000 and dedicated 
to the Women of the Confederacy. Noblest monument of all is 
this. 

The Arlington monument has been most ably placed before you 
by Mrs. Faison, but a special appeal comes at this time to push the 
sale of the Arlington seals, as a testimonial of love to the memory 
of Mrs. Edgar James, who designed them, and who has lately been 
called to join the mighty hosts across the river, whom she desired 
to honor. 

Shiloh Day was observed by all the chapters over the state, 
with the most gratifying results, which are due to the untiring ef- 
forts of Mrs. A. L. Smith. This is but the beginning of good work, 
which it is hoped will continue for Shiloh, 

My friends it is neeessary that this division awaken to the State's 



16 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

financial affairs. Our treasurer will show you there is a deficit this 
this year, and some steps must be taken to meet the ever increasing 
state expenses. Year by year they grow larger. Our minutes are 
by far the heaviest. The price per page remains the same as given 
seven years ago, the cheapest that can be obtained, but the pages 
increase each year. Something must be done in order to make them 
less bulky. The subject has been one to which your president has 
given both thought and study during the past years, and hence 
v/ould make a few suggestions: 

1st. That all chapter reports be limited to the space allowed 
for remarks on the blanks, and if they exceed this the Recording 
Secretary be authorized to shorten them. 

2nd. That all committee reports be limited to three typewrit- 
ten pages. 

3rd. That all addresses of auy kind be omitted. 

4th. That one or more pages be set aside for Memorial ones, 
giving simply names of deceased and chapters of deceased members 
and date of death. 

5th. That all committee stationery and expenses be paid out of 
said committee fund where there is one, otherwise from State fund. 

6th. That the state tax be increased to 15 cents per member, as 
this is necessary to meet necessary expenses. 

7th. That your state treasurer be instructed to pay out of the 
Sinking Fund, so far as it will go, all outstanding debts, also to con- 
tinue to use next year's SinkingFund till these debts are liquidated. 

8th. Your president would also suggest that hereafter one 
evening during each .convention be set aside as Historical Evening 
at which time suitable papers be read by ladies selected for the 
oceasion. This evening to be under the auspices of the Assistant 
Historian, who after consulting with the State Historian, will select 
the subjects for the papers and those to write them. 

In June it was your president's privilege to go to Marion and 
aid in the final organization of the McDowell chapter, and on 
October 20th in the name of that chapter to welcome the Veterans 
to their Veteran's Day and explain to them the objects of the 
Daughters of the Confederacy. 

Your most particular attention is called to the question of 
demits. These blanks are gotten out by the general organization 
and are required where a Daughter moves from one chapter to 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 17 

another, they must be signed by the president and secretary of the 
chapter on order from that chapter, end no paper or letter purport- 
ing to be a dismissal blank and signed by any other officer is legal. 
These blanks must be presented to the chapter named in the 
blauk and registered in both chapter and state book, otherwise 
the lady cannot be counted as a member. Sufficient attention is not 
given to this matter and hence much confusion and misunderstand- 
ing results. 

During the past year your president has writteu 2000 letters and 
1000 post cards, signed and sent out 349 U D. C. certificates, and 79 
children's certificates besides a number of blanks and other papers. 

The saddest part of every report is that which tells of those who 
were once among us, but whose faces we shall see no more. This 
year has seen pass away the originator and designer of the South- 
ern Cross of rlonor, Mrs. S. E Gabbett of Atlanta. In our own 
Division death has taken in the prime of life and work our ex- 
treasurer Miss Alice Nelson of Greensboro, and also our earnest, 
devoted co-worker Mrs. Helen DeBerniere Wills, both true, loyal 
Daughters of the Confederacy, whose places are hard to fill. They 
were my friends true and tried, on whose advice I could always 
depend, and I miss them 

And now my friends I feel that my report has been long but I 
wished to render unto you a just account of my stewardship. For 
seven years I have given to you and our work the best that was in 
me, of my time, my energy and my talents, it now remains with 
you to say how you think I have succeeded in my stewardship. 
Before laying down the office of high honor which you have be- 
stowed upon me, I want to thank you one and all for all that you 
have been to me in my work, for the kind loving letters and mes- 
sages that have come from you each year, and to tell you that no 
one will ever know how much they have been appreciated. May I 
ask that in the future you may prove to my successor in office the 
same true, helpful Daughters you have been to me. To you of my 
Executive Board and members of all my committees I would ex- 
tend sincerest thanks for your aid and kindly forbearance with my 
many shortcomings, and may we in the future, as in the past, each 
in her own sphere, work together for the love of everything that 
belongs to the Confederacy. 

And now my friends I am done. Confederate work will ever be 



18 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

my joy and pride, and thus as your president I bid you farewell. 

Sincerely yours, 
FANNIE RANSOM WILLIAMS, 

State President. 



Motion made "that a committee be appointed by 
the President to thoroughly investigate the good sugges- 
tions and report later before accepting her report." This 
was done. 

Reports from the Recording and Corresponding 
Secretaries, Registrar and Recorder of Crosses were 
read and accepted. 

« RECORDING SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

Madam President and Daughters of the North Carolina Divis- 
ion, United Daughters of the Confederacy. 

It is a priyiledge and an honor for me to bring to you my 
second report as your Recording Secretary. Before giving this 
report allow me to thank collectively and individually you that 
have given me such cordial support, aiding me by words of en- 
couragement and kindness to make my work one of pleasure. 
Each letter seemed to be from a loyal friend speaking ever thought- 
fulness and consideration for me. Many of my most pleasant 
hours were caused by lovely invitations to your homes to unite 
with you in your local work for the Cause we represent. 

It has always been my desire to answer all letters promptly by 
return mail if possible. 

Our work holds its own; with an encouraging increase among the 
Children's Chapters. The State Books record 88 Chapters with 35 
Children's Chapters, there being three new chapters: 

Transylvania Chapter, Brevard, N. C. 

McDowell Chapter Marion, N. C. 

Wilkes Valley Guards, North Wilkesboro, N. C. 

Four Children's Chapters: 

Stonewall Jackson, Graham, N. C. 

Virginia Jacksie Daniel, Winton, N. C. 

Mrs William M Parsley, Murfreesboro, N. C. 

Fassifern Chapter, Lincolnton, N. C, 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 19 

There have been sent out 1221 Application Blanks and 424 for 
the Auxiliaries. 342 letters and 185 postals have been written. 79 
childaen's certificates have been sold. I would suggest that more of 
these certificates be procured by these chapters. Very few demit 
blanks have been issued. 

My dear co-workers now that my official duties and honors for 
the past two years are about to be laid down I wish to again thank 
you for the love you have shown me and the sympathy you have 
given my failures and shortcomings. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JACKSIE DANIEL THRASH. 



CORRESPONDING SECRETARY'S REPORT 
Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Again it becomes my pleasant duty to submit to you my annual 
report as your Corresponding Secretary. 

All matters coming into my hands and under my supervision 
have been given prompt and careful attention. 

The Chairmen and Members of the Committees were duly noti- 
fied of their appointment, several of whom wrote nice replies and 
manifested much interest in the work. 

A circular letter from Mrs. McSherry, President General, U. D. 
C, calling attention to where and how the U. D. C. pins could be 
obtained, was sent out to the President of each chapter. 

At the request of our President, each Chapter President was 
written to with reference to obtaining a copy of the General Minutes • 

The members of the newly appointed Soldiers Home Committee 
were also notified of their appointment. 

All miscellaneous correspondence was given the proper atten- 
tion. 

The year's work has been pleasant and instructive, and, I trust) 
satisfactory to the Division. 

I retire from the honored position bestowed upon me two years 
ago, and renewed one year ago, with thanks to you for the honor, 
and I especially thank the Division for their uniform courtesy, 
kindness, and co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

BESSIE YOUNT FEIMSTER, 

Corresponding Secretary. 



20 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 
registrar's report 

Madam President and Daughters of the North Carolina Division: 
United Daughters of the Confederacy. 

I herewith submit my report of work done, the past year. 
Early last spring I completed the copy of our State Record, and 
sent it in to our Registrar-General, Mrs Gantt. 

I have registered 365 applications and 17 demits; have written 
141 letters and 42 post cards 

This large number of letters and cards was rendered necessary 
by the fact that chapter officials do not seem to understand that it 
is now an essential that the Veterans endorsing the application 
papers must give both Regiment and Company to which they be- 
longed. Also, that no demit can be accepted, unless made out on 
regular demit blanks 

If you will turn to the report of my predecessor, in this office, 
you will note her statement "that the books of the Registrar have 
not, do not, and cannot, in the present state of affairs, accurately 
reflect a true condition in your organization as to number of mem- 
bers, names of members, etc." 

This opinion I most heartily endorse, and I humbly suggest to 
this honorable body that they do not separate until some action be 
taken whereby a more accurate registration can be secured. 
Respectfully submitted, 

ANNIE JONES DAVIS,

Madam President and co-workers of the Daughters of the Confederacy. 
Your Recorder of Crosses in submitting her report for the year 
1911 would impress upon you two facts which would tend to lessen 
both labor and expense connected with this work: First. In order- 
ing crosses or materials for cross applications, write directly to the 
Recorder of Crosses aed not to the State President. In the latter 
case the President has to write to the Recorder of Crosses and Chap- 
ter President; and the Recorder in turn writes to both State and 
Chapter Presidents, making four letters where one would answer. 
Second. In making money orders for crosses do not include Re- 
corder's postage in that order. Make post office order on Mrs. L. H, 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 21 

Raines, Savannah, Ga , for the crosses, and with the order inclose 
sufficient stamps for the Recorder to forward all papers by first 
class mail. By remembering these suggestions the State expenses 
will be decreased 

In looking .ver the North Carolina Recorders' books I find 
there are ten chapters that have never awarded crosses. I have 
written several of these chapters calling their attention to this 
matter, and in one or two instances offered to go and assist the 
chapter in starting this work. The awarding of crosses is one of 
our most important duties and we should all see to it that no veter- 
an, who deserves and desires a cross, is without one when December 
1912 arrives After that date no more crosses may be awarded. 

Although we have been awarding crosses since 1900, our State 
records go back no father than 1907. When I went to Savannah in 
February 1911 to consult Mrs. Raines, I copied the records for 1903 
and a part of 1904. As a matter of State pride I think we should 
have all these back records copied and filed with the State Records; 
however that is for you to decide 

During the year there have been 506 Crosses of Honor awarded. 
Of these 461 were to veterans, 14 to widows, 31 to descendants and 
21 were duplicates as follows:

The historian's report was partly read by the Record 
ing Secretary. When the motion was made to adjourn 
to accept the so much appreciated invitation to a beauti- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 23 

fully appointed luncheon given at the Board of Trade 
rooms by the Women's Clubs of the Twin City. 



FIRST DA Y- Afternoon Session. 

Business was resumed at 2:30 o'clock and the 
Historian's Report taken up. Motion was made by 
Mrs. I. W. Faison, seconded and carried that the follow- 
ing Resolution be incorporated in the minutes. 

"Whereas it was authoritatively reported to this 
Convention that Elson's History is in use in the schools 
and colleges in North Carolina: Be it resolved— that the 
North Carolina Division United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy heartily endorses the action of its Historian 
in investigating the use of this History and commend 
the colleges that have eliminated it from their curicu- 
lum. Resolved — This be recorded in our U. D. C. 
minutes." 

Motion was made by Miss McGill of Fayetteville, 
seconded and carried "that the historical papers of Miss 
Cameron's Report be sent to the News &_> Observer's 
Historical Review for publication and that the balance 
of her report be accepted." 

Motion was afterwards made that the whole of the 
Historian's Report be published in the minutes, second- 
ed and carried. 

HISTORIAN'S REPORT. 

Madam President: 

I herewith present my report as Historian of the North Caro- 
lina Division, U. D. C. for the year 1910-11. 

During November 1910 I received five historical papers for 
preservation. 

Two were sent by the J. E. B. Stewart Chapter of Fayetteville, 
one from the Person County Chapter and two from the Stonewall 



24 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

Jackson Chapter of Charlotte. These were sent to the Office of the 
Secretary of State and put on file. 

Since then the Division has reported no historical work to me. 

During the late session of the Legislature, as the North Caro- 
lina member of the General Committee U. D. C. on the Department 
of History and Archives, and as Chairman of your State "Commit- 
tee to petition the Legislature to erect a Department of History 
and Archives; and to erect a suitable building to store such records, 

I and my committee in connection with the State Historical 
Commission, and the other patriotic organizations in the State, and 
by individual work secured the passage by the Legislature of a bill 
for the immediate erection of a State Administration Building which 
is to be fireproof, wherein we are to have ample space, supplied 
with all modern improvements for filing and preserving our U. D. 
C. historical records and papers 

This crowns with success the work of several years, and is most 
gratifying to your committee, who further report that the Depart- 
ment of History and Archives has already been created under the 
name of "The State Historical Commission," and is doing most 
valuable work. 

The next matter of importance taken up officially, was the re- 
port published in the June issue of the Confederate Veteran on the 
authority of the President of the Maryland Division, U. D. C, Mrs. 
F. G. Odenheimer, that Elson's History of the United States was in 
use in the University of North Carolina and in Davidson and 
Trinity colleges, which statement was made to her by the McMillan 
Publishing Company. 

I at once wrote to the Presidents of the University, Davidson 
and Trinity, asking if the history was in use in their class rooms. 
President Venable referred me to the Professor of History at the 
University, Dr. J. G. deR. Hamilton, who said he had drawn the 
attention of the McMillan Publishing Company to the errors and 
inaccuracies of this History long before the Roanoke College inci- 
dent gave it such publicity, and declared his intention of dropping 
it from his class books. And stated that when these sectional 
questions came up in the class room the students were taught the 
truth from the Southern standpoint. 

President Smith of Davidson College wrote me that his Pro- 
fessor of History had used Elison's book for the express purpose of 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 25 

having these especial charges against the South brought up in order 
to refute them, but had lately decided to drop it in future, 

President Few, of Trenity Gollege says Elson's History is not in 
at Trinity and has not been for many years. These statemeuts made 
authoritatively by Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Smith, and Dr. Few, satisfacto- 
rily dispose of this most important subject. So far as I have been 
informed no steps have yet been taken for the establishment of the 
U D. C. Lending Libraries, for which our Historian General, Mrs 
J. Enders Robinson appealed so urgently. 

I trust, now that we are to have the State Administration Build- 
ing where it can be housed, that one will soon be established in our 
Capital City. I think this covers the range of my official work. 

I have written something over a hundred letters and many pos- 
tals and have made offieial report of my work as Div. Historian to 
the Historian Genera). 

And now in the line of that history which it is our duty to pre- 
serve, 1 wish to report as briefly as may be another most glorious 
"FIR^T" for NORTH CAROLINA. 

It was only in June that I learned what all North Carolinians 
should rejoice to know thaf'The Stars and Bars," the first flag of the 
Confederacy and chosen badge of OUR OWN ORDER of the U. D. 
C. was designed by a North Carolinian and first floated over North 
Carolina Soil. 

Is not this worth knowing? and do not we all think that a spe- 
cial Monument should be erected to the Flag and to its designer on 
the sacred spot which was forever hallowed by its sacred folds? 

Here is the history of the Flag as told by Major Orren Ran- 
dolph Smith, a native of Warren Couuty, North Carolina who de- 
signed the Mars and Bars and first gave it to the winds of Heaven 
in Louisburg, North Carolina: — 

When the Senators and Representatives of the seven Confeder- 
ate States that had seceded Feb. 1st, 1861, met at Montgomery, Ala. ( 
the first business after organizing was to decide whether the new 
nation should have a new flag and a new Constitution or fight under 
the "Stars and itrips" and under the Constitution of the United 
States. The debate was short, both sides had strong arguments to 
offer. 

A new Constitution, composed by Native White Citizens was 
adopted, and a Committee advertised in the leading papers for de- 



26 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

signs of flags, to be seat to them at Montgomery One of these wen* 
from Louisburg, N. C. where there was living a man, an original se- 
cessionist, who so hoped that the Confederacy would adopt a new 
flag and a new Constitution that he was ready with a design when 
the advertisement of "Flag Wanted" appeared. When this man, Or- 
ren Randolph Smith, was introduced by Gen. Julian S. Carr, Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the U. C. V. ot North Carolina, at their Reunion 
in Norfolk, September 1910, he told the story of the flag in the fol- 
lowing words: — 

"Three times have I been a soldier at my Country's call, twice 
fighting under the 'Stars and Strips' and one under the 'Stars and 
Bars.' While with Taylor, south of the Kio Grande, a unit in that 
proud array that never let an enemy touch our flag; in Utah with 
Albert Sidney Johnson, 1857-58, I learned what the flag meant to 
the men who were willing to give their lives for 'Old Glory,' every 
day and every hour in the day. A soldier's flag must be his inspi- 
ration, it stands for home, kindred and country; it must be some- 
thing more than a piece of bunting or the blending of bright col- 
ors. 

"When at Sumpter, the shot was fired that was heard around 
the world," 1 realized that a new country had been made and that 
the new nation must have a new flag of the deepest, truest signifi- 
cance, to lead the "Men in Gray" against the greatest odds and 
through the greatest difficulties that any soldiers have ever come 
since the world was made. The idea ot my flag I took from the 
Trinity, "Three in Oue." 

"The three bars were forchurch, State and press, Red represent- 
ed State, legislative, judiciary and exeutive; white for Church; Fa- 
ther, Son and Holy Ghost; red for press, freedom of speech, freodom 
of conscience and liberty of press — all bound together by a field of 
blue (heaven over all) bearing a star for each State in the Confed- 
eration. The seven white stars, all the same size, were placed in a 
circle, showing that each State had equal rights and privileges 
irrespective of size or population The circle, having neither head 
nor foot, stood for eternity, and signified "You defend me and I'll 
protect you." I had the flag all complete in my mind before the 
Confederate Congress advertised for models, and when the adver- 
tisement appeared I went to my friend, Miss Rebecca Murphy( she 
is now Mrs. W. B. Winborue of Wilsou, N. C.) and asked if she 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 27 

would make me a little flag, I'd tell her how. I tore the 'Bars' and 
cut the 'Stars' and she sewed the stitches and when finished the 
little flag was sent to Montgomery with the suggestion that a star 
be added for each State that joined The Confederacy. The flag com- 
mittee, as you att know, accepted the flag and named it 'THE 
STARS AND BARS " They also adopted the suggestion and it was 
not long before the flag bore eleven stars for the eleven Confeder- 
ate States that voted for Jefferson Davis to be President. 

"After the small flag was sent toMontgomery I bought dress goods 
from Barrows' Store and asked Miss Rebecca to make me a large 
flag 9x12 feet, for whether the flag committee accepted my model or 
not I was determined that one of my flags should be floating in the 
breeze. 

"Splicing two tall saplings together. I made a pole one hundred 
feet high and planted it on the court house square at Louisburg, N. 
C. (where I was then living) and the flag was sent aloft on Monday 
March 18th, 1861, two months before North Carolina seceded. 

"Over the flag was floating a blue streamer, like an Admiral has 
on his ship when 'homeward bound' and on this pennant I had 
stars for each State that had seceded and one for North Carolina, 
for though my State was still in the Union I knew she was 'home- 
ward bound.' 

'This was the first Confederate Flag ever raised in the Old 
North State, and this is how the 'Stars and Bars, came into exis- 
tence, Dixie's Flag that floated over the bravest and hardest to wear 
out soldiers ever encountered in any War." 

Major Orren Randolph Smith was born, Dec. 18th. 1827, in War- 
ren County, in 1846 he volunteered for five years, or during the war 
with Mexico. He went as a private, he was discharged at Smith- 
field, N. C June 1848, with rank of 'Captain.' 

He was in Kansas when President Buchanan sent Colonel 
Albert Sidney Johnston, in command of U. S. forces, to Utah to 
coerce the Mormons into obedience to Federal authority, which he 
accomplished. Smith with rank and pay of Lieut, left Fort Leaven- 
worth, with the U. S. troops June 10. 1857 for Salt Lake City where 
he remained until fall of 1858, when he returned to North Carolina 
and made Louisburg his home. 

He enlisted June 1, 1861, in the 2nd Batallion, N. C. troops, 
Lieut. Wharton J. Green commanding, at Warrenton, N. C, After 



28 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

his right arrn was crushed, and he was unable for field duty he was 
made quarter master with rank and pay of Major This position 
he held until end of War. 

There is another bit of history that I would like brought to 
your notice just now and that is the death and burial place of Miss 
Anne Carter Lee, the second daughter of Gen. R. E. Lee, as next 
October will mark the half Century of her rest in North Carolina. 

"Far from the toil and tumult of the twentieth Century, nine 
miles from a railway, and a half mile from the 'high road' is to be 
found a family graveyard, consisting of less than an acre, situated 
upon a knoll, surrounded by a forest of cedars, it is always in 
shadow, for the cedars have been left to shelter the graves. These, 
with two immense chestnut trees and the running box and flowers, 
are the only watchers "of those" asleep 

In the southeast corner there stands a granite column, twelve 
feet high on a square bise four feet each way and one foot high. 
The die is three feet square with moulding on top, the shaft is 
eighteen inches at base and twelve at the top, capped by an urn. 
The whole composes as symmetrical a monument as one could 
find. 

Three sides of the die are engraved. On the south (facing you 
as you approach the grave) is: 

"Anne C. Lee, Daughter of Gen, R. E. Lee and Mary Custis 
Lee " 

On the east: 

"Born at Arlington June 18th, 1839, Died at White Sulphur 
Springs, Warren County. N. C. Oct. 20th, 1862 

On the west: 

"Perfect and true are all his ways 

Whom heaven adores and angels praise " 

These are the closing lines of one of her tavorite hymns, and 
the one she asked to be sung just before she died 

When Gen. Lee was consulted about the inscription to be 
placed upon the monument, he sent the above and asked that 
nothing be added, and that nothing but plain English letters be 
used. 

General Lee's family found that it was necessary for them to 
evacuate their home at Lexington, Va., early in the beginning of 
hostilities; and after trying several temporary homes, drifted down 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 29 

to the then famous Warren County White Sulphur Springs, hoping 
that here in this quiet place, with the help of the valued waters, 
Miss Annie Lee might be nursed to health and strength. Before 
the war "Old Warren" was one of the leading counties of the State 
and "Jones' Springs'' (as it was more familiarly known) was the 
rallying place of the wealth and beauty of Norrh Carolina and her 
sister States. The proprietor, Mr. William Duke Jones, was an old 
time Southern gentleman, and treated his patrons as if they were 
veritably his "guests " Here in this haven, far from the battles, 
Mrs. Lee and her daughter made their home. But in October, 1862, 
the fragile sufferer sank to sleep, aurrounded by loving friends, and 
was laid to rest in this private cemetery of Mr. Jones', which was a 
short distance from the hotel. 

Impossible as it was for Gen. Lee to leave his place at the head 
of the army, it was equally impossible for her friends to carry her 
body to her home at Lexington, so in this "resting place" the ideal 
of the old Saxon words "God's Acre" was buried the beloved daugh- 
ter of the ehieftain of the Confederate States Army. 

Before the war began Mr. Joseph Speed Jones, son of Mr. Wil- 
liam D Jones, employed a competent stonecutter, Mr. Zerald 
Crowder, to place granite steps and supporting columns to his 
house, which was being remodeled, and also to carve a monument 
for his wife lately dead; and in 1862, when Miss Lee died, he had 
intended that Mr. Crowder should also carve a stone for her grave, 
but every man having been called into service, Mr. Crowder was 
"at the front." Mr. Jones, wishing to leave undone nothing to show 
honor to the General's daughter, wrote to Gen. Bragg, a Warren 
county man, asking if he could not have Mr Crowder detailed for 
the work of cutting the monument, as his health was not good and 
he was unfit for active service in the army, Gen. Bragg wrote on 
April 2nd, 1864, "The feeling and just tribute you are quietly pay- 
ing to the worth and eminent services of my old friend Gen. Lee, 
is just what I should have expected of "Old Warren." What ever I 
can do to forward the project will be most cheerfully performed." 

Gen. Bragg was with Gen. Lee in the war with Mexico. On the 
15th of April, 1864, he wrote again: 'Private Crowder will hand 
you this. He is directed to see you and execute the work of which 
you spoke to me, or rather of which you wrote to me. It was 
necessary to use some little circumspection to keep Gen. Lee from 



30 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

knowing the object, or he never would have yielded his assent. 
Be so good as to require him to finish the work as soon as possible 
and return and report to me if he is able." 

The Warren women took up the work of love, and elected Mrs. 
Joseph S Joues chairmao, organized a society for the purpose of 
collecting funds with which the grave of Anuie Lee might be mark- 
ed by as handsome a stone as they in their own great need could 
give. No others were asked to subscribe than the women of Warren 
county. 

This was the FIRST monument ever erected to a woman by 
women, and this handful of Confederate Daughters formed the 
corner stone of the man/ chapters of the U. D. C. 

Mrs Jones and Mrs. W. J. Green were the largest contributors 
and they made possible this handsome monument, though many a 
'"widow's mite" was gladly given. 

It was not until the summer of 1866, that the monument was 
ready for public dedication. The ladies sent invitations to Gen. 
Lee and his family by special messengers: and asked that if they 
could not be present at the time specified, they appoint a time when 
they could be present. General Lee could not be present by the 
terms ot his parole, and traveling at that time was too dangerous 
an uudertakimg tor Mrs. Lee and her daughters; but Gens. G. W. 
Custis Lee, and W. H. F. Lee came, and were the guests of their old 
West Point comrade Col W. J. Green at his home, "Esmeralda," 
several miles from "Jones' Springs." Here too, as guest lor the 
occasion, was Orren Randolph omith, the right hand man oi the 
"Daughter's," putting the monument in position, arranging the 
speakers stand and seats tor the guests, and on the great day 
August 8th, 1866, was master ot ceremonies. 

The year before Gen. Lee died, he, with his daughter, Agnes 
drove in a buggy to Mr. Jones' house as quietly t aud as simply as 
one neighbor visiting another. 

When the General reached his daughter's grave he was deeply 
affected, and much gratified that the women of their little town had 
done so much for him and liis: He said then, he never wished his 
daughter moved Irom this fallowed spot, and he spoke ot the North 
Carolinians as true and tried triends. 

Iu 19U0, Mr, Smith, knowing so few people knew of the quiet 
grave in N. C, took his daughter to this "God's Acre" that she might 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 31 

make a sketch of it. An oil picture done from the sketch made on 
this trip, was exhibited at the Raleigh Fair, and then sent to the 
North Carolina Room of the Richmond Museum, at Richmond, Va., 
the "White House" of the Confederacy. Another picture of the 
monument, as you approach the cemetery, is at his home in Hender- 
son. 

James Barron Hope, the "Poet of the Confederacy" was invited 
by the Warren county women to make the address when the monu- 
ment was unveiled, and he delivered an elegaic ode, written for the 
occasion. 

While a guest at Col Green's, Mr. Hope made a sketch of the 
grave and sent it to Mrs. Lee, and her letter is appropriate here: 

Lexington, Va., Nov. 10, 1866, 
"I cannot sufficiently express my gratitude to you, my dear sir, 
for sending that beautiful sketch of ray dearest child's tomb. 

"I have often longed to revisit it, and it is an inexpressible 
comfort to me daily to view this image of a spot so dear I have 
loved to think of her lying so quiet, in that lovely place where the 
foot of our invaders never trod; to know, too, that she v/as spared 
the misery of seeing the downfall of the cause she so much loved. 
She only met the doom Heaven often awards its favorites, and I am 
content. 

"I do not know the names or ages of your children, but send 
them two photographs of the General which they may perhaps 
value in the time to come. You can place their names on the back 
of each card. 

Yours most respectfully, 

M. C. Lee." 

This letter and one of the photographs are in the possession of 
Mrs. R. A Marr, of Lexington, Va , a daughter of Gapt. James Bar- 
ron Hope. 

So here in this beautiful spot, where she was laid to rest in 
1862, we leave until that last great morn, the dust of her who was 
the daughter of that Christ like man, OUR CHIEFTAIN, ROBERT 
E. LEE" 

Begging pardon if I have taken up too much time, I have the 
honor to be 

Very respectfully yours,

transportation committee report 

North Carolina Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy: . 

A special rate for this Convention was duly requested of the 
railroads, tmt the conditions required of us were such as to consti- 
tute a courteous refusal. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MISS CARRY A LEAZAR, 
Chr. Transportation Com. 



There was no report from Arbitration Committee. 
Just here regular business was suspended, and the Presi- 
dent introduced the Hon. A. H. Boyden, of Salisbury, 
who presented for the consideration of the Division 
"The Erection of a Monument by North Carolina at the 
Battlefield of Gettysburg." A rising vote of thanks was 
given Mr. Boyden, and the discussion will be taken up 
under the head of new business. 

Four o'clock, the hour appointed for the elegant 
reception to be given by that charming hostess, Mrs. W. 
N. Reynolds, for the Daughters of the American Revolu- 
tion, motion was made "that Amendments be postponed 
and taken up as first business Thursday morning". 
Seconded and carried. 

Motion made to adjourn. 



SECOND DAY- Morning Session 

Convention opened at 10:20 o'clock Thursday 
morning with prayer by the Chaplain, Miss Hettie 
James. 

Minutes were read by the Recording Secretary and 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 59 

approved, also letters and telegrams were read. 

Motion that replies be sent to telegrams and letters 
received from The National Regent of the Daughters of 
the American Revolution, from Mrs. McSherry, Presi- 
dent-General of the United Daughters of the Confeder- 
acy, from Arkansas Division, the Richmond Division, 
and Mrs. Eller of Virginia, made and carried. These 
telegrams were sent at once. 

Mrs. London made a motion "that a letter be sent 
to 'our mother' the first President and organizer of the 
North Carolina Division, Mrs. Wm. M. Parsley of 
Wilmington," seconded and carried. This was done. 

Miss Louise Bahnson rendered in sweetest tones, 
"Gems of Scotland," by Julie- Rives King, inspiring us 
for the day's work just begun. 

As is our sacred custom, time was here given to 
Memorial exercises, that chapters so unfortunate, be 
enabled to pay tribute to those members "that have 
crossed the River." 

The President called for a moment cf perfect 
silence. 

It was decided that one page be given to "A Tri- 
bute of Love" to Miss Alice Nelson, she being an ex- 
State officer. 

Next in order was the fulfilling of a promise made 
one year ago by our "Court Painter," Mrs. Marshall 
Williams, and in graceful words she presented the 
"Coat of Arms" of North Carolina as a gift from herself 
to the North Carolina Division, to be placed in its room 
in Richmond, Va. This was unveiled by two tots, little 
Misses Dorothea Gorrell and Margaret Francis Green, 
and accepted by Mrs. Latta Johnson, Regent of the 
North Carolina Room. 



60 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

MRS. MARSHALL WILLIAMS ADDRESS 
Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It is with much pleasure, I present to this Division a painting 
of the Great Seal of North Carolina. You have so often honored 
my brush with orders to paint the portraits of our noble heroes, 
that I am glad of an opportunity to thus express my appreciation. 
The Seal comes down to us from the second Charter granted by 
King Charles II, to the Lords Proprietors of Carolina 1665. 

In the Colonial period there were four different seals; since 
North Carolina became a State, there have been five distinct Seals. 

Of the first Seal we have no official description, but it can be 
seen in the Public Record Office in London. As the form of 
government changed, so did the seal, and when the government of 
the Mate of North Carolina was organized, the Constitution adopted 
at iialifax 1776, that "there shall be a oeai of this Mate, which shall 
be kept by the Governor, and used by him, and called the "Great 
Seal of North Carolina In 1776 the Seal may be described as 
iollows: On one side tne rigure ol Minerva ot Liberty, holding in 
the right hand the pole and c<tp, and in the iett nand a targe scroll, 
with the word "Constitution," on the other side, is the figure, a 
woman, probably "Plenty" — in one hand a distaff, the other au ear 
ot corn, trees in tne back-ground, and a cow. This Seal has been 
changed, and to-day we have the preseut design: Minerva, Goddess 
of Wisdom presenting the distaff of Liberty to Dame Ceres, the 
Goddess of Pleuty. 

Kespecttully, 

MRS. MARSHALL WILLIAMS. 



MRS LATTA JOriNsTOiM'-a ACCEPTANCE 

Madam President, United Daughters oi the Confederacy: 

In the name ot the North Carolina Division ol the Daughters of 
the Confederacy, I have the honor to receive the seal of the State 
from our gifted artist, Mrs. Marshall Williams, whose skillful brush 
has been inspired by patriotic love; and whose laithtul portraiture 
is also illustrated in "Esse Quam Videri " 

Asv Regent of the N. C. Room in the Confederate Museum in 
Richmond, Va., it will be my pleasure personally to carry with me 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 61 

and to see hung within the walls where we have already accumu- 
lated much of historic interest, to be treasured for our sons and 
daughters; and that they may turn to them as Miltiades did to the 
Mouuments of his Grecian heroes, may be an inspiration to them as 
to him, to deeds of his^h heroism. 



Motion made by Mrs. Gordon Finger, seconded and 
carried "that an especial rising vote of thanks be given 
Mrs. Marshall Williams." 

The Amendments were next taken up, and accept- 
ed. 

amendments 



ARTICLE III 



Section 2. Add "Said demit must be sent to State Registrar 
immediately on admission of member into a Chapter." Reason: 
This is done in order to make State and Chapter registration books 
tally. 

Sec. 4 A U. D. C. engraved certificate must be awarded by all 
Chapters to every member upon their rolls, and to each new mem- 
ber as soon as admitted, and all charter members must order same 
with their charter. Reason: This is a law of the general organiza- 
tion, which they require observed. 

ARTICLE IV 

Sec. 2. Should a vacancy occur in a State office for any cause 
whatever, the State president shall have the authority to fill the 
same. Reason: There is no authority given, by which such a 
vacancy can be filled, and this is very necessary. 

Sec. 3. Make present Section 2. 

ARTICLE V 

Sec. 2. Add "No proxies ahall be allowed Chapters." Reason; 
Proxies are unparliamentary, and are almost always unsatisfactory. 

Sec. 3. Add after word Convention "when present, but no 
proxies allowed." Reason: This is now a rule and should be in- 
corporated in the Constitution. 



62 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 
article VI 

Sec, 2. Change tax of 10 cents to 15 cents for State. Reason: 
The Division business is now so large that expenses cannot be met 
at present rate. 

ARTICLE VIII 

Sec. 2. After word "Daughter" substitute for rest of the sen- 
tence the following: "When wishing to join a U. D. C. Chapter, the 
child's application blank must be copied verbatum with signatures 
of endorsers on a U D. C. application blank and then presented to 
Chapter Credential Committee lor their signatures, before being 
registered in Chapter and State." Reason: Because it is not under- 
stood how this transfer is intended to be made, and the constitu- 
tion should clearly state 

Sec. 4. Add after word "Chapte " "but no proxy allowed" 
Reason: This is now the rule, but not stated in Constitution. 

ARTICLE IX 

V D. C. NORMAL SCHOLARSHIPS 

Sec. 1. These scholarships at the Greensboro Normal are open 
only to descendants of Confederate Veterans, who are otherwise 
unable to attend college. 

Sec. 2. All applicants must fill out a U. D. C. application blank 
showing eligibility, with signatures of Veteran endorsers, and 
nearest Chapter president, also formed with above statements from 
reliable parties as to fiuancial disability to otherwise attend college, 
and good moral character. 

• Sec 3. All applicants for said scholarships must stand a com- 
petitive examination. Papers to be sent out by State president to 
some reliable party in applicant's home town. 

Sec 4. Those securing these scholarships shall be entitled to 
hold same for four years, if reports are satisfactory to State presi- 
dent and president of the college. Reasons: Nothing is said in 
Constitution regarding these scholarships, and some laws should be 
laid down. 

BY-LAWS 

No. 7. After words "return to Chapters," omit "if so desired " 
and substitute "president." 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 63 

Mrs. Stone was escorted to the rostrum and gave 
the Division a heart to heart talk and splendid advice 
relative to U. D. C. work. Rarely are we given such a 
treat and each Daughter felt better able to continue her 
work. After Mrs. Stone's address Mrs. Williams in be- 
half of the North Carolina Division, in well chosen 
words, presented her with a beautiful floral token. 

Mrs. Riggins, ever thoughtful of the welfare and 
enjoyment of all, extended an invitation to the luncheon 
given by the Norfleet Camp United Confederate Vete- 
rans. 

Motion was made to adjourn. 



SECOND DAY- Afternoon Session 

The Convention was opened for business promptly 
at 2:30 o'clock. 

Following the ruling of the Convention the election 
of officers was taken up. 

Tellers: Mrs. H. E. Reid, Mrs. Doane Herring, 
Mrs. B. L. Tyree, and Mrs. B. C. Cobb.

MRS. GARRISON'S REPORT 
The report from the Soldiers' Home Committee, Western sec- 
tion, is very small. I hope the fault is not altogether with the 

Chairman. 

My Committee consisted of 41 ladies from that number of 
chapters in the Western section of the State. I wrote to each one 
tellin- her of the work, and only ten responded. Some of these 
wanted more information I wrote to those in authority but re- 
ceived no replies Not satisfied with one effort, I made the third 
attempt to get information without success. Only in the last few 
days have we heard anything. It was then too late to write the 
Committee again. 

There were some, I think, would have given if they could have 
received further information. Those reporting to me were as fol- 
lows: 50Q

66 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

Report from the Arlington Monument Committee 
■was read by the Chairman, Mrs. I. W. Faison, and 
accepted. 

REPORT OF ARLINGTON MONUMENT ASSOCIATION 

The North Carolina Division U. D. C bought fifty dollars ($50) 
worth of Confederate seals, for Arlington Confederate Monument, in 
Washington, D. C , and I bought $5.00 worth from the Ashe- 
ville Chapter, as they bought $25.00 worth. Have sent to Mr. 
Streater, Treasurer, for this year, $284.25. 

I still have ray penny collections in the school for this monu- 
ment. 

The seals came to us so late last year or we would have sold 
many more. 

Only 4 chapters sold the whole amount expected from them, 
$13 75 for one box up: Children's Chapter, Charlotte; Winston- 
Salem Chapter, Laurinburg Chapter, and Wilson Chapter. 

We have sustained a great loss in the U. D. C. work in the death 
of Mrs. Edgar James, a native of North Carolina, and late of 
Florence, Ala, the originator of these seals. Her heart was in this 
work, and she was so anxious to see Arlington Monument complet- 
ed next year and then Shiloh Monument. 

I earnestly request every chapter to sell all the seals they have 
on hand during the coming holiday season and report to me by 
February 1912. We must keep up with other States. 
Respectfully submitted, 

SALLIE YATES FAISON, 
State Director Arlington Monument.

Minutes read by the Recording Secretary, approved 
and accepted. 

Report of Children's Chapters by; Chairman, Mrs. 
Gordon Finger. 

CHILDREN'S CHAPTER REPORT 

As a result of last year's conference on children's chapter work, 
three new children's chapters have been organized. The historical 
data collected from last year's circular letter to the entire Division, 
is on file and seemed too voluminous to submit for the minutes, it 
includes the names of organizers of most of the chapters, with 
sketches of the lives of men and women honored by the chapter 
name. We would suggest that they be turned over to the historian 
or printed at intervals in the State papers and compiled in a scrap 
book. 

The conference of this convention was helpful and informal, 
and many questions were asked and answered, the establishment of 
eligibility, the amendment since carried, being favored by the 
leaders. 

Suggestions presented that the absent leaders and new ones 
might find helpful .*ere, to divide a chapter where there is much 
disparity of age into two sections, letting the elderly members assist 
in the training and amusement of the younger ones; that a sham 
battle or some drill marching may draw or hold the interest of the 
boys. The importance was also emphasized cf the instructive 
teaching of the children, make the State names, Robert F. Hoke, 
Johnston Pettigrew, Robert and Matt Ransom, as well known and 
revered as any your committee would suggest That in the import- 
ant notices of State work, attention is especially called to all \he. 
main facts of how to organize, children are included. That no 
charter is required, no State tees and no chapter fees, unless locally 
desired. The name is selected by the mother chapter if they desire, 
and a member as Leader or committee detailed for the organization, 
the name sent to the State recording secretary 

The conference was fortunate in having the vast experience and 
splendid information of our beloved ex-president, Mrs. Cornelia 
Branch Stone, in solving the problems presented by the members. 
A suggestion of hers, that we have a State banner or flag for annual 



68 Minutes of Fifth enth Annual Convention 

awarding to chapter excelling along certain lines, your committee 
should decide upon, was enthusiastically adopted by the leaders, 
should it meet the approval of this body. 

Leaders are asked to take our official organ the "Keystone," 
which tries in each issue to meet some need of the children's work, 
(price 50 cents.) 

Respectfully submitted, 

MAUDE TURNER FINGER, 
Chairman 



Mrs. Thos. Lee Craig offered to donate the flag to 
the children and a motion was made by Mrs. Overman 
that Mrs. Craig's gift be accepted. Seconded and 
carried. 

Mrs. Finger's report for Children's Chapters was 
accepted, and a rising vote of thanks given Mrs. Craig. 

The Keystone report of the North Carolina Division 
was read by the Manager, Mrs. Finger. Accepted. 

KEYSTONE REPORT FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA DIVISION 

"The Keystone" has represented the North Carolina Division 
United Daughters of the Confederacy, as its "official organ" for the 
past four years, having been adopted in 1907. 

We have printed reports of officers and chairmen, chapter re- 
ports and convention reports for your Division, besides carrying 
official U. D. C. notes for Virginia and South Carolina, as well as 
the General U. D. C. 

"The Keystone" is preeminently a Southern woman's publica- 
tion, and all work on it is entirely gratuitous, both editorial and 
clerical — the editors and managers giving freely of their time and 
ability to help record the happenings in our Southern women's 
organizations. 

We appeal to you to send us a record of your doings, and when 
we print what you send us, we again ask you to read and preserve 
these printed records. It is only through your co-operation that 
this work of preserving printed records of Southern women's work 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 69 

can go on, and it is partly to you that we owe whatever of success 
we have achieved 

We have put the subscription price of the "Keystone 11 at the 
nominal sum of 50 cents per year, which does not really pay for 
the cost of printing it, but we wish to make it within the reach of 
every Southern woman 

We also make a combination offer with the Confederate Veteran, 
offering both magazines together, "The Keystone" and the Veteran 
for one year for $1.10. 

During the past year Mrs. Gordon Finger, Charlotte, has been 
the Manager for the North Carolina Division column in "The Key- 
stone," and it is to her unfailing efforts that your column has been 
so ably kept up: To her and to your State president, Mrs. Williams, 
we extend our sincere thanks for their hearty co-operation with us. 

We appreciate your confidence in imposing this trust in us, in 
choosing "The Keystone" as your "official organ," and we hope that 
every member of the North Carolina Division U. D. C. will feel 
that she has a personal interest in "The Keystone." 

We ask for your continued interest and co-operation in our 
efforts to maintain a publication in the South which will truthfully 
and impartially represent and record the achievements of our 
organized Southern women. 

We have given you in the past the best of our ability and 
promise loyal and continued service for the future. 
Respectfully submitted, 

LOUISA B. POPPENdCIM, 

Manager. 



The committee appointed to pass on suggestions in 
the President's report was called for. All were approv- 
ed of but one. The report was then accepted, and 
these suggestions become laws. 

SUGGESTIONS 

1. That all chapter reports be limited to the space allowed for 
remarks on the blanks, and if they exceed this, the Recording 
Secretary be authorized to shorten them. 

2. That all committee reports be limited to three typewritte : 
pages. 



70 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

3. That all addresses of any kind be omitted. 

4. That one or more pages be set aside as Memorial ones, 
giving simply names of deceased, chapter, and date of death. 

5. That all committee stationery and expenses be paid out of 
said committee funds, when there is one. otherwise from the State 
fund. 

6. That the State tax be increased to 15 cents per member, as 
this is necessary to meet necessary expenses. (This was adversely 
reported by the committee, but had already been passed by the 
convention in the Constitutional amendments.) 

7. That your State treasurer be instructed to pay out of the 
sinking fund, so far as it will go, all outstanding debts, also to con- 
tinue to use next year's sinking fund till these debts are liquidated. 

8. That hereafter one evening during each convention be set 
aside as Historical Evening, at which time suitable papers be read 
by ladies selected for the occasion. This evening to be under the 
auspices of the Assistant Historian, who after consulting with the 
State Historian, will select the subjects for the papers and those to 
write them. 



Mrs. Marshall Williams' motion to add to the year 
report blanks "Have you read your Minutes" was car- 
ried. 

The Committee of Resolutions of Thanks was ap- 
pointed: Mrs. E. F. Reid, Mrs. J. J. Yates, Miss Annie 
Gash and Miss Maud Windley. 

Report of the Shiloh Monument read by the Chair- 
man, Mrs. A. L. Smith. Accepted. 

SHILOH MONUMENT REPORT 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

As Chairman of the Shiloh Monument Committee, I am glad to 
make a much better report this year than ever before toward the 
Monument to be erected on the battle field where 10,699 brave 
heroes gave up their lives. Last year we congratulated Nr>rth 
Carolina on contributing $90 00, a considerable gain over the two 
previous years. This year we will add to this fund $218.96. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 71 

A list of the contributions to Shiloh Monument will be found 
in the treasurer's report under Shiloh. 

To each chapter an appeal was made, making it necessary to 
write a number of letters and post cards. 

Many of these contributions came after the observation of 
Shiloh day, April 6th, which was inspired by the Special Edition 
of The Newton Enterprise, gotten out by Mrs. Williams our State 
President and State Director of the Shiloh Monument Committee- 
A copy of the paper was sent to every chapter in the General 
Division. 

For the above we are specially indebted to Mrs. Williams and 
due her a vote of thanks for the admirable manner in which this 
matter was handled in this issue of The Newton Enterprise. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. A. L. SMITH. 



Miss Leazar rose to a point of personal privilege re- 
questing that one of the veterans, Mr. Brown, allow us 
the honor of seeing one of the battle scarred flags. Mr. 
Brown was escorted to the rostrum by Miss Leazar and 
with the Daughters standing, gave a very interesting 
sketch of this flag that had waved on both sides of the 
Chowan River. 

Motion was made that Mr. Brown be thanked. 
This was done most enthusiastically. Mrs. Stone again 
most interestingly gave a talk in behalf of Arlington 
Monument. 

The hour, one o'clock, having arrived for the lun- 
cheon given by James B. Gordon Chapter of Winston, 
motion was made to adjourn. 



THIRD DAY- Afternoon Sessrion. 

Reports from the Henry L. Wyatt Monument, the 
Chapel Hill Monument and The Endowment for North

man of each respectively. Accepted. 

report of wyatt monument committee. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It is with a peculiar sense of joy that I bring to you this re- 
port of the Henry Wyatt Monument Committee For what gives us 
greater pleasure than to be bearer of glad tidings? The Henry 
Wyatt Monument just a few years ago a house of dreams is so soon 
to be a reality, upon which may the sunshine of your approval ever 
fall It was at our last convention which was held in the home 
town of the Bethel Heroes that the amount necessary for the com- 
pletion of our fund was pledged. 

Chapters from the following towns were the ones to make the 
last contributions: Raleigh, Lincolnton, Fayetteville, Wadesboro, 
Newton, Washington, Tarboro, Wilmington, Gastoma, Goldsboro, 
Kenansyille, Winston and Selma. 

Last October I reported to you that we had given the commis- 
sion for our Monument to Moses Ezekiel, but when the contract 
came it asked for three years in which to do the work, so we 
thought best not to accept it But we feel very proud that we have 
giveu the commiasion to one of America's most famous Sculptors, 
Gutzon Borglum of New York. It may be interesting to know 
where we can see some of his work. In the Capital at Washington 
is the bust of Lincoln, in the Metropolitan Art Gallery and the 
Cathedral to St. John the Divine New York we will also find pieces 
of his work, and in manyother places The first model of the Wy- 
att Monument has been accepted and according to contract first 
payment of $1500 has been paid. The life size model will soon be 
ready and Mr. Bob Ricks of Rocky Mount has been appointed to 
see the model in the studio and accept it for our committee if cor- 
rect. 

On last Wednesday our committee met in Raleigh for the pur- 
pose of making the plans for the unveiling of our monument which 
we hope to take place at an early date. We can't say now just what 
day, but it will be sufficiently published. Various sub-committees 
were appointed by Chairman Dawes of the Legislative Committee to 
make all final arrangements. 

This monument will face the Government Building that is soon 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 73 

to be erected in Raleigh, a most fitting site for this, our Monument. 
For truly it is ours, made possible by the Daughters of the Confed- 
eracy, the patriotic citizens and the State Legislature of the 'Old 
North State " 

We want everybody in North Carolina to be in Raleigh the day 
this monument is unveiled. I assure you, who have not visited our 
Capital City, that we who know the people there can safely say you 
will be welcome to Raleigh, and everyone be made to feel it is 
really our city. We certainly hope every chapter in our State will 
be represented and the children should see what we are doing to 
honor the memory of our heroes and to beautify our Southland, 
something the world can look upon and be glorified with noble 
thoughts of the brave and the true. 

In a way I feel that before this report closes we should thank 
every Chapter in North Carolina, every individual who has contri- 
buted to this work, and especially should we be grateful to the 
Legislative Committee for their deep interest. But do we deserye 
any thanks? I'm inclined to feel it would be irony, for we have 
each done only in part what we owe to our native land. This is our 
heritage, shall we not make it a house beautiful? 

If our brave heroes give their life's blood shall we not consider 
it a joy to help perpetuate their precious memory. So when you 
at last look oa the Wyatt Monument know it represents joyful ser- 
vice and loyal rendering of our best in heart and head in your 
behalf.

monument. There is still $1000 to be made up before June, or the 
monument cannot be unveiled during commencement, I beg you 
to go home and work for this object. Remember that it cannot be

REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA ROOM. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Last spring our President suggested to me to appeal to our 
Legislature, then in session for a donation to aid our Endowment 
Fund for North Carolina Room in Richmond. Mrs Williams' son 
kindly drew up the bill, and I asked General Julian S Carr to in- 
troduce same in the House, and Senator Rivers D. Johnson of my 
native county of Duplin to aid us in the Senate. Their efforts were 
effective, and an appropriation of $20!) was secured for us. We 
gratefully acknowledge this valuable assistance. Our State Treas- 
urer reports a sum total of $370.18. Now I do not think the Chap- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 77 

tecs, as a whole recognize the importance of this fund, and I trust 
next year the responses will be more generous. 
Respectiiully submitted, 

MRS. M. McD. WILLIAMS,

Report from the Home of Wives and Widows 
Committee was read in the absence of the Chairman 
by Mrs. Currie. 

Much discussion was brought forth. It -was decid- 
ed to do away with the idea of an Annex and to 
change the name, calling it a "Home for the Confede- 
rate Women." 

Motion was made "Thaf each Chapter President 
in the Division be requested to ascertain the number of 
Veterans' wives, widows and sisters of Veterans, need- 
ing a home and report the number to Mrs. Hunter G. 
Smith, Fayetteville, N. C. Motion made by Miss Mc- 
Gill, of Fayetteville, and carried. 

REPORT O 7 COMMUTES ON WIVS3 AVD WIDOWS AMNEX. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy : 

At the couvenlion at Rocky Mount a committee was appointed to 
go before the Legislature and ask that theState build a home for the 
wives and widow, of Confederate Veterans, to be added as an An- 
nex to the Soldiers' Home in 1 aleigh, and the State Division, U. D. 
C , pledged to furnish this home. 

Your committee appeared iu Raleigh at the time appointed — 
were met by one of Cumberland's most worthy representatives, Mr. 
A. D McGill, who asked the privilege of presenting this cause, as 
he had introduced the bill in 1891 for the establishment of the 
Soldieis' Home He made a most able and interesting presentation 
of the cause The committee, with the Johnston Pettigrew Chapter 
met with joint Committee on Pensions. The Bill was presented, 
asking for an appropriation of $500!) for erection and $5000 for 
maintenance of a home for Wives and Widows. The Bill was re- 



78 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

ported favorably. The time was appointed for a hearing on the 
Bill before the Committee of Appropriations from the House, but 
owing to a long session of the House until such a late hour, the 
meeting was postponed. Some members of your Committee had been 
in Raleigh for a week and were obliged to return home, but we 
left with the assurance that the Bill would be reported favorably 
After we had left there was some objection to the Home in connec- 
tion with the present Soldier's Home. For moral reasons, some 
thought it best not to build the Home for the wives and widows 
there, Your Committee feel they cannot see the wisdom of this 
act, as it was to be an entirely separate building in charge of a 
matron. 

This work is a labor of love to alleviate suffering humanity. 
Your Committee deem it best, in order to have concerted action by 
all our women in this most important work, that this Convention 
disbuss the whole question of location and take such action and 
make such recommendations as to them seems wise. Your Com- 
mittee will then have the united support ->f the entire organization, 
whose unselfish devotion to a noble cause is one of the choicest 
possessions of the Old North State. 

We want to say in this connection thit we found no opposition 
whatever to the establishment of such a home, and we feel satisfied 
that this much needed provision for the wives and widows will be 
established by the General Assembly of 1913, and it is for the Con- 
vention to decide as to the location. 

The Committee wants to thank Mr Joseppus Daniels for his as- 
sistance and commendation of the Home for wives and widows 
through the columns of the News and Observer, also, the Johnston- 
Pettigrew Charpter for courtesies shown them while in Raleigh 

Total amount received and on hand $452.70. For itemized 
statement of contributions for 1910-11, see treasurer's report.

I beg to report some work done for the Jefferson Davis Home

The Treasurer, Maj. Leather, writes me that "The Old North

It is now the desire of the Association to build a highway con- 
necting the birth places of President Davis and Lincoln, and 
further to erect a handsome Memorial to President Davis. This 
work should appeal to every patriotic Southern woman. 

The following names and amounts have been received and 
forwarded: Mrs. Creasy, Wilmington, $100; Mrs. Woolvin, Wil- 
mington, $100; Mrs. Ragan, Gastonia, $1.00; Mrs. Wilson, Gastonia,

Memorial Arch Commsttee Report was read by the

REPORT ON MEMORIAL ARCH 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

In looking back on the Minutes of the Society I find that it 
has been eight years since the inception of the idea of erecting a 
Memorial Gateway to the Soldier's Home in Raleigh. As a resident 
of that city and a frequent visitor to the Soldier's Home I was pre- 
pared to see what was needed to make this place more comfortable 
and attractive. As to the comfort of the Veterans, this had been 
provided for by the State and many generous citizens, with the 
volunteer help of the Daughters. 

The lawn and flower beds and garden were beautifully kept up 
by the Superintendent and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, with the help 
of the strongest Veterans who felt a pride in their Home. It was 
thought that a handsome gateway would add much to the beauty of 



80 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

the place. It was at the Convention of 1904, held in Fayetteville, 
that I ventured to offer a motion which wis seconded by Mrs. A. L. 
Smith of Charlotte, and passed the State Organization, to erect at 
the aforesaid entrance, a stone gateway, each stone having the name 
of a Chapter engraved upon it. The matter was left open until the 
next year, 1905, when the Committee asked to rescind the kesoiu- 
tion to place the memorial at the entrance of the Soldiers' Home, 
this being unadvisable, since this home will revert to the State 
eventually The committee, in lieu of this, then proposed the 
erection of a Memorial Arch entrance to the Coulederate Cemetery 
in Kaleigh, as an enduring monument to the memory of over one 
thousand soldiers whose mortal remains lie in that sacred spot, 
representatives from every Southern state 

In order to raise funds for this object, a resolution was passed 
for each Chapter to raise twenty dollars, estimating the cost of the 
work would be about one thousand dollars. At this time there 
were fifty-seven Chapters recoided in the Secretary's book. You 
will see that I made allowance for a failure perhaps, of some smalt 
chapters that could not meet the allotment. The first contribution 
received was in October 1905. Dodson Ramseur Chapter, Concord, 
($20) twenty dollars. 

Treasurer reported contributions for 1906 (200) $ 180 00 

June 1907 Balance in treasury (520) 700 00 

1908 Balance in treasury (116) 816 00 

19U9 Balance in treasury (43) 859 95 

1910 Balance in treasury, total to date (41) 900 85 

It will be seen from this statement that for some cause the 
contributions have diminished each year, I suppose on account of 
the many other objects upon which you are called to direct your 
attention. 

At the Convention at Rocky Mount, October 1910, Mrs. Little 
the efficient treasurer, reported that she thought the total amount 
on hand would be about one thousand dollars including the inter- 
est of the fund which she had loaued to a reliable party It will be 
seen from the contribution that only $40 was contributed from 1909 
to 1910. 

About fifty four Chapters have contributed, leaving now thirty- 
four yet to be heard from. Many of these Chapters have been 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 81 

formed since 1904, but which will no doubt respond to the call for 
$20 each 

It was my misfortune not to be present at the Convention in 
Goldsboro in 1908, in which there arose a murmur of disapproval 
regarding the inscription on the Memorial Arch. It is the object of 
this Committee to act in the best capacity for this object, regarding 
material, construction and inscriptions, Your Committee has had 
advice from wise, and competent architects who all the time advise 
not inscribing name of Chapters in the stones. It would require 84 
stones of equal sizs — it would be very costly and to a degree per- 
ishable to cut muss on stone, apart fro n the detraction as an ob- 
ject of beauty. The best architects advise bronze tablets to be 
placed on each side, on which should be inscribed the Chapters 
making the contributions. This would add to the cost, which 
would be at least $200, but which should go on the Arch as a main 
feature, 

Your Chairman must beg your indulgence for this long paper, 
but I suppose there may be delegates here who are not well inform- 
ed regarding the work, but who would be interested did they know 
of it The falling off in contributions argues a failure on the part 
of some Chapters to come up to the requirement, but this has had 
no effect on the Cemmittee who are generous enough to allow free- 
dom of thought and action. Were the Committee to falter under 
the opinions of those who have raised objections 1o the project, it 
would indeed have fallen by the. wayside. But for their duty and 
loyalty to the 50 chapters which have so generously and so heartily 
contributed to it, we will continue our work. This Arch will not 
only be erected in honor of our departed heroes, but it wiil stand 
as a memorial of the devotion of North Carolina's Daughters to the 
Confederate Soldiers representing every Southern State, who 
served in the war of 1861-1865 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS E. E. MOFFITT.

immediate action toward this achievement. Carried. 

Mrs. London called the attention of the Convention 
to the fact that sortie suggestion had been made to use 
in the Children's Chapters "The After School Club of 
America" Literature. Mrs. Stone spoke on this subject 
giving sound advice to the women of North Carolina. 
Mrs. London made this motion: Resolved, That the 
North Carolina Division United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy enter its protest against the After School Club 
of America and that we have nothing to do with it 
whatever. Mrs. W. O. Shannon moved that a letter be 
written Supt. Joyner protesting against his name ap- 
pearing as endorser of the After School Club for South- 
ern Children. Carried, Mrs. Shannon to write the let- 
ter. Mrs. Gordon Finger objected, feeling the Clubs 
should not be antagonized. Mrs. London's motion was 
carried.

With all good things that had come to us, truly the 
best was kept for the last. Just as the Twin City clock 
chimed the ending of the day October 27, 1911 the 
Rev. Dr. Neal Anderson of the First Presbyterian 
Church of Winston, in earnest and divine words pro- 
nounced the Benediction, bringing to a close the Fif-

(Taken home for correction, returned too late for 
insertion at proper place in the minutes.) 

ASSISTANT HISTORIAN'S REPORT 

Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy, ladies and gentle- 
men. 
It is with love and pride that I greet this great body of ladies, 

who have done so much to collect and perpetuate the heroic acts of 

the Confederate soldiers of North Carolina, and the great truths of 

our Southern history. 

Our State stands "First in war, first iu peace," and first in the 

hearts of her citizens — of her proud and loyal Daughters. 

"Carolina! the pride of my bosom 
Carolina! the Land of the Sea, 
Carolina! the home of my fathers 
Carolina! my song is of thee!" 

My work, as Assistant Historian, has been collecting the un- 
written history of our State, those great and glowing deeds of her 
patriotic sons, which will crystalize into everlasting laurels to 
wreathe the brow of Carolina, the Queen of the States. 

But ladies, I saw the length of our beloved Historian's report 
and I condense mine, commending hers to you, which I heartily 
endorse, adding a few words and recommendations. 

Besides collecting history, etc., I aided in getting the appro- 
priation for our Hall of Records, soon to be built in Raleigh, our 
capital, by collecting and sending list after list of signatures of the 
citizens of my section of State, asking it of the Legislature of North 
Carolina. But I must condense. Now for suggestions, or recom- 
meedations. 

Bennett House, where General Joseph E. Johnson, surrendered — 
days after the Army of Northern Virginia, under General Robert E. 
Lee, had surrendered, is an historic spot and should be marked, 
and there are many others in our State. I feel that Gen. Julian S. 
Carr and Mr. Boyden would aid us in this great work. And in 
this connection I'd like to say that our first great chieftain — Gen. 
Joseph E. Johnston— first Commander-in-Chief of the Confederate 
forces (who lost his place on account of bravery and wounds) has 
received almost no recognition. Ladies, let us do our duty here, 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 87 

let us, let North Carolina, be the first to subscribe to a monument for 
him, in honoring him we'd honor ourselves. It is my intention to 
take this subject up at the General Convention of the U. D. C. in 
Richmond. He represented us as a whole, not as a Virginia 
General. 

As a Southern lady, a Colonial Dame, a Daughter of the 
American Revolution, and a Daughter of the Confederacy, and as 
your Assistant Historian. I cannot endorse The Long Roll, Mary 
Johnston's Southern novel. 

The book is well written, but I regard it as a caricature of our 
great General Stoaewall Jackson. Even the frontis piece, the 
pictures in it are severe caricatures. 

We should protest, unless we leave it quietly alone. Expect it 
will be taken up by the General Convention at Richmond. 

We are too fond of helping Virginia, of placing our laurels on 
her brow, but trust me ladies, Virginia has the peculiar talent of 
helping herself— of taking care of herself. Lee and Jackson are 
already in the Val Halla, let them rest! I'm afraid the school 
children will think there were only two Generals in the war between 
the States. They are no doubt the largest and brightest stars in the 
Galaxy of theConiederacy,let us hunt North Carolina history — North 
Carolina heroes. The Bible says no man can do more than give his 
life for a cause, and many of our brave North Carolinians did that, 

We are a monument building people, let us continue to build 
them in the hearts of the children. Educating the children is our 
greatest work now, and let them perpetuate the great truths of our 
great cause and country. 

We should teach them that their gallant sires of old 
Left a heritage more precious than rubies or gold, 

That honor and patriotism are the rarest gems 
That adorn America's diadems!

Remarks — The most important work of the Vance County Chap- 
ter this year has been the erection ot a monument which was un- 
veiled November 10th, 1910. The cost of this Memorial was 
$3636.10, and the chapter is proud to report that on the day of 
unveiling this amount was paid in full. We had on that day as 
our distinguished guests, Gov. W. W. Kitchin and General Julian 
S. Carr, and after a delightful program, dinner was served to over 
200 Veterans. 

Too much praise cannot be given to the President of the Vance 
County Chapter, Mrs. S. P. Cooper for her enthusiastic work for the 
Monumeut, and the phenominal success of the undertaking is due 
to her efforts. Pretty little Elizabeth Renirow Cooper, the daugh- 
ter of our President, and grand daughter of General Henry R. Jack- 
son unveiled the monument amidst cheers and applause. Elaborate 
exercises were held in the Court House and dinner served to the 
veterans, January 19, June 3. Memorial Day was fittingly observed 
with parade, speaking and address by Hon. J. C. Kittrell, after 
which dinner was served. 

The Vance County Chapter U D. C. and Henry L. Wyatt Camp 
Confederate Veterans, felt honored to have had the President of 
Vance County Chapter, Mrs. S P. Cooper chosen to represent N. C. 
as Sponsor at Little Rock, Ark., and also to be Sponsor at the State 
Reunion at Wilmington, N. C.

Remarks — We have done very little during the year. We 
observed Memorial Day. Owing to the severe weather, it is almost 
impossible to celebrate 19th of January, for the Veterans live in the 
country and often they cannot come to town for the exercises, 

Most of our members live in different parts of the county, so it 
is not convenient to meet often. We hope to do more work during

Home, Raleigh, N. C, $5.00 to the Chapel Hill Monument fund, 
$5.00 to Shiloh Monument, $1.00 to the fund for Mrs. Raines. Sent 
a box of provisions to an old Veteran. Christmas we sent a nice 
basket to an old Veteran who has been sick for a long time, has not 
been out of the house in three years. It pleases him so much for 
the Daughters to remember him. We observed Lee-Jackson Day 
with fitting exercises, gave the Veterans a nice dinner consisting of 
oysters, coffee, etc. Memorial Day was observed in the most ap- 
propriate manner, had so many beautiful flowers for which we 
thank the school children. It is a lovely sight to see every scholar 
bring flowers on the 10th of May to decorate the soldier's graves. 
Mr. R. C. Dunn of Enfield delivered the address which was grand 
and enjoyed by all who were fortunate enough to hear him. The 
hall was small, so a great many could not get seats. After the 
speaking a bountiful dinner was served. 

The line is growing shorter every year — so many familiar faces 
that were with us last Memorial Day were missing. It will not be 
much longer that we Daughters will have the pleasure of doing 
these little things that give them so much pleasure. We are work- 
ing hard for our monument.

served the Veterans. In July the chapter had the honor and great 
pleasure of giving a beautiful and largely attended reception to Mrs. 
Stonewall Jackson, at the Suyeta Park Hotel. The extensive 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 131 

grounds of the hotel were fairy-like with electric lights and crim- 
son lanterns. The interior halls, parlors and dining room, were 
elaborately decorated with Confederate flags, festoons of bunting 
palms, flowers and ferns. A picture of Gen. Jackson, draped with 
Confederate flags, hung in the parlor where Mrs. Jackson received 
with Mrs. Richmond Pearson Hobson, the officers of the chapter, 
and a number of the Veterans of the Pink Welch Camp. The 
evening was enlivened by the patriotic strains of Dixie and other 
old time Southern airs, rendered by the Waynesville Orchestra. The 
chapter, as well as the citizens of Waynesville felt highly honored 
by having Mrs. Jackson among its visitors, and the opportunity 
thus afforded to show respect and love for the honored widow of 
one of the foremost Generals of the world. In August a number of 
the members attended the re-union of the Veterans held in Waynes- 
ville and dispensed refreshments. Our president gave a short ad- 
dress, speaking of the monument to be erected at an early date to 
our honored county Confederate soldiers.

CHILDREN'S CHAPTER REPORTS 



No. 1— WASHINGTON GRAY'S CHAPTER, WASHINGTON 

The Washington Gray's Chapter of the Children of the Confed- 
eracy, is a faithful and enthusiastic little band; the Chapter in a 
most flourishing condition. 

The children are interested in all work they are called upon to 
do, and eager to carry it to a successful finish. 

The monthly meetings are well attended. 

The children always take an active part in the Lee Birthday 
exercises, and also on Memorial Day. 

They make laurel wreaths for the Confederate Monument, dec- 
orate the soldiers graves, act as ushers, presnt the Crosses of Hon- 
or, and help to serve the dinner given to the soldiers by the 
Daughters of the Confederacy on Memorial Day. 

Our work this year is to put a stone coping around the lot upon 
which stands the monument erected by our Chapter under Mrs. 
Call s leadership. 

This monument is in honor of the seventeen soldiers killed in 
the defense of Washington in 1862. We have nearly the amount 
needed on hand. 

Our next undertaking will be to present a portrait of Stonewall 
Jackson to the Public school of our city. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. STEPHEN C. BRAGAW, 

Leader.

the sale of Confederate Christmas Seals. We sold and reported the 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 151 

first box in the state, thereby making $13.75 for Arlinton Monu- 
ment. 

At each one of our meetings, we sing in chorus, have solos- 
both vocal and instrumental, recitations, lessons in history, our 
Confederate Catachism and last, but not the least, in the eyes of the 
children, light refreshments. We expect to double our number 
this year and try to be the largest Children's Auxiliary in the 
State. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. I. W. FAISON, 

Leader. 



No. 4— JANE HUGHES CHAPTER, NEW BERNE 

Our meetings are held regularly on the 10th of each month 
with good attendance and an interesting program arranged by the 
children themselves. We always unite with the Daughters on the 
celebration days and do our part loyally. Twenty-eight new mem- 
bers have been enrolled during the year which gives us a member- 
ship of 119. Four of our girls have passed the age limit and have 
transferred to the Daughters. 

From our annual sweet pea show we realized $25 which we 
donated to the New Berne Circulating Library to buy books suit- 
able for children. 

We have sent flowers to a veteran's funeral, $4.44 to Arlington 
monument, $5 to Chapel Hill monument, and a box of sup- 
plies to the Soldiers' Home for the Jane Hughes bed and have on 
hand $47.59. 

Respectfully submitted,

Leaders. 



No. 5— ROBERT E. LEE CHAPTER, ASHEVILLE 

Our Chapter in Asheville is not large, but it is constantly 
increasing its membership. We have, altogether, an enrollment of 
about thirty, but many of these have "out grown" us, so to speak. 



152 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

We have held our meetings in Confederate Hall, endeavoring 
to have a Veteran meet with us as often as possible and tell us some 
stories of the war as he saw aud knew it. It is my great desire that 
the children feel love and loyalty, a personal, deep-rooted feeling, 
for the cause their fathers fought for, and for the men who fought 
for that dear cause. 

This winter we are meeting in the homes of the children, and 
are working for the Shiloh Monument, as our honored President, 
Mrs. Williams, felt that this was a splendid work, and we all feel 
that it needs immediate attention. 

We are very careful about the children's membership blanks, as 
these will, in the future, entitle them to become members of the U. 
D. C. and the S. of C. V. 

Strong hands, strong hearts! 

Let us work for the children. 
Teach them to honor, to love, and be loyal. 

Teach them the men they know as grave fathers, 
The women whose love guards their steps as they go, 

Where the strength of a land in its fighting and dying, 
We're a sad Nation's bulwark in its sorrow and woe. 

Strong hands, strong hearts! 
Let us stand by the children, 

Teach them not bitterness, anger, nor hate. 
Lift up their souls till they feel in their wondering, 
The honor, the grandeur, of their young nation's fate! 
Respectfully submitted, 
ELIZABETH ELLIOTT LUMPKIN GLENN, 

Leader. 



No. 6— GEORGE DAVIS CHAPTER, WILMINGTON 

The George Davis Children's Chapter sends greetings. The 
chapter is in good condition. There is an average attendance of 
twenty at the monthly meetings, and the children are interested. 
We have had fourteen new members, and two have been transferred 
to the Cape Fear Chapter during the year. The Chapter has given 
this year $10.00 to the Chapel Hill Monument, and $6.03 to the 
Arlington Monument. Sixty two names are enrolled, but several 
have moved away from here.

No. 7— THE STARS AND BARS CHAPTER, NEWTON 

The Stars and Bars Children Chapter has a membership of 
nearly 100 children and while we have no regular days for meeting 
the members are always responsive to any call made upon them. 
In the observance of our regular prescribed days during the year 
the children were very active in participating in our programs. 
On Memorial Day they carried out the program of songs and re- 
citations entirely alone, joining the Daughters in the floral march 
through the cemetery. As members grow older we hope to enroll 
every one in the Ransom-Sherrill Chapter. 



No. 8- J. D. MOORE CHAPTER, GASTONIA 

The J. D. Moore Chapter, Children of the Confederacy is proud 
to report a most pleasant and successful year. 

The membership — already large — has been increased by six 
members, all splendid workers. 

Monthly meetings held in the homes of the different members 
prove most beneficial in both a literary and social way. 

The chief study this year being the life of General Robert E. 
Lee. 

On celebration days the children take a prominent part. 

Three hundred dollars has been donated to the mother chapter 
for the monument, which they hope soon to erect, every cent of 
which has been made by these zealous little workers, and will be 
used to pay for fhe Statue of a Private Soldier, which will form the 
cap of the monument. 

And after this good work is completed they will start with re- 
newed energy to answer any other demands upon them. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. THOS. LEE CRAIG, 

Leader. 



No. 9— FRANK BENNETT CHAPTER, WADESBORO 

Report of the Frank Bennett Chapter Children of the Confeder- 
acy to the North Carolina Division United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy, 

Under the capable management of their most efficient leader, 



154 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

Mrs. R. M. Mann, this chapter has worked splendidly during the 
past year. There are 57 members enrolled, with au average atten- 
dance of 35 at each monthly meeting. The treasurer's report shows 
disbursements amounting to $25.90 as follows:

$4.00; head stone, $1.75; balance on hand, $3 60; making a total $29.50 

Through the kindness and generosity of Major W. A. Smith 
Anson Veterans' beloved Commander, this chapter has been tender- 
ed the use of a room which is to be made a Confederacy room. In 
here are to be kept and preserved all the relics, memoirs and re- 
miniscences of Anson Veterans. The members are most enthusias- 
tic and zealous over this plan of work, and expect in a few weeks 
time, to have this room comfortably furnished, and housed within 
its walls, many relics and memorials, which will, in a measure, 
bespeak the [worthy, noble part Anson's sons played in that 
memorable struggle. 

To Mrs. R. M. Mann, the retired leader, is due the credit of the 
chapter's success, full of energy and enthusiasm, she ably lead this 
chapter, from its organization, to its preseut large and useful mem- 
bership. In token of their appreciation the children presented her 
with a Daughter's badge, a beautiful emblem of their love and her 
fidelity. The chapter starts the new year with high hopes and 
aspirations to achieve great success along many lines of work. 

MRS. L. J. HUNTLEY, 

Leader. 



No. 10— JOSHUA VICKS CHAPTER, SELMA 
We have between 15 and 20 members, and a very good atten- 
dance, and lots of interest shown. We sold for Mrs. Faison about 
$10 00 worth of those Christmas seals and that is about the only 
work we have done. We have dues of 1 cent a month, 5 cents for 
birthpay dues. The meetings are in honor of the different girls who 
celebrate their birthdays during the month. All meetings were held 
with me, and I always tried to make them interesting by preparing 
a nice program and serving refreshments.

The Annie Lee Chapter, Children of the Confederacy, are still 
a faithful little band, and each year have some new work to report. 

They sold $8.87 worth of Christmas stamps and have 
$3.63 worth on hand which they expect to sell and return the pro. 
ceeds to Mrs. Faison for the Arlington Monument fund. They 
assisted the Roanoke Minute Men Chapter observing Memorial 
Day, and each Veteran's grave in the town cemetery showed signs 
of loving care. This work of caring for the graves being done by 
their own little hands. They have marked every Confederate 
Veteran's grave in town with a metal marker. 

They assisted their Leader in entertaining the Roanoke Minute 
Men Chapter in honor of our beloved State Secretary, Mrs. Thrashi 
the occasion being her birthday. The little president, Susie Gay, 
gracelully presented her, in the chapter's name, a Confederate 
buttoD, washed with gold to preserve it and mounted on a pin> 
Jefferson Davis's birthday was appropriately observed. Flowers 
have been sent, in their chapter's name, to several homes where the 
Angel of Death has visited. They have sent one historical paper 
to the historian of the mother chapter. There has been several new 
members since their last report. They have many plans for the 
coming year. 

Respectfully submitted,

No. 12— ANNIE K. KYLE CHAPTER, FAYETTEVILLE 

The Annie K. Kyle Chapter is pleased to report another year of 
successful work. After enjoying the rest and delights that a 
vacation gives, the first meeting of the Fall opened with new energy 
and satisfactory results. 

The chapter has grown strong the past year, both in numbers 
and good work. The monthly Saturday morning meetings have 
been well attended and are always interesting. A few vacancies 
have occurred by members moving away, yet new recruits come in 
to take these places, and the secretary's roll shows that we are 
steadily gaining. Our bank book also shows that we have a fund 
on hand to answer any call of need. A box of clothing, toys and 



156 Minutes of Fifteenth Annual Convention 

confections is sent to the children of some Veteran at Christma^ 
time. 

On the 10th of May the chapter maintained its reputation by 
uniting with the Mother Chapter in the Veterans' dinner exercises 
cheering the hearts of the old soldiers with inspiring war songs 
Afterwards had places of honor in the line of march to the Soldier's

No. 13— W. G QUAKENBUSH CHAPTER, LAURINBURG 
Dear Madam President and Daughters: 

I regret with all my heart that I cannot be with you at this 
convention, but I send my loving greetings and best wishes. Espe. 
cially do I regret not being able to read to you the report of my 
little chapter, "The W. G. Quakenbush Children's Chapter," for I 
am in hopes that this year it is the banner chapter in the number 
of increase and money raised. My report of last year gave my 
number as 39, I believe, this year I have 60, and within the last 
seven months have raised $25 for the Chapel Hil monument, and 
$200 for the monument in our own town. Isn't that fine? We hope 
to continue the good work. This chapter is only two years old. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. T. T. COVINGTON, 

Leader.

months.

No. 15-ROCKINGHAM VOLUNTEERS, REIDSVILLE 

We have thirty three members on our roll, but since several of 
our older girls are away at college, we have only twenty five active 
members. We were organized in May, 1910, and have held regular 
meetings every month. We observed the 10th of May by having 
our chapter children, and others, 99 in all, represent the Confede- 
rate flag. We aided the Rockingham Chapter in sening a Christmas 
box to the Soldiers' Home last year. We have much enthusiasm in 
our chapter, and we are planning this year to assist the Rocking- 
ham Chapter in the care and support of our Veterans. We also 
want to make a contribution to the Arlington Monument, 
Respectfully submitted,

No. 16— LEE-JACKSON CHAPTER, DURHAM 

The Lee-Jackson Chapter, Children of the Confederacy, comes

of workers. We have twenty three members and an average atten- 
dance of twenty. Our meetings are held the second Saturday in 
every month, and we have not missed a meeting during the entire 
year. We observed Lee's birthday, Jackson's birthday, and had a 
meeting in honor of Jefferson Davis. Our April meeting commemo- 
rated Joseph E. Johnston and his surrender at the "Bennett Place" 
near Durham, N. C. We held a meeting beneath the old tree under 
which history says he surrendered, and had papers and incidents of 
Johnston's life. We took part in the Memorial Day exercises. Our 
contributions for the year have been $26.00 to the Durham Monu- 
ment fund, and $5.00 for the North Carolina room at Richmond, 
making a total of $31.00 contributed.

LENA REINHARDT, 

Leader. 



No. 19-ANNIE VIRGINIA JACKSON, WINTON 

It is with pride and honor I bring you a report from the "Anne 
Virginia Jackson" Children's Auxiliary to the Hertford County 
Chapter of the U. D. C. It was organized by its leader just a year 
ago, and named in honor of our friend, that noble, true, and faithful 
woman, whom we all love, Mrs. Thad Thrash. It has only ten 
members and their ages run from 4 years to 14 years of age. They 
meet regular once a month for six months, since then no regular 
meeting has been held, for the older ones have been away and are 
now at school, and the little ones have been sick most of the time. 
But their dues are all paid up, for the one for which it is named 
belieyes in promptness in all things, so they follow her example in 
all doings. They have sent one quilt to the Soldiers' Home, 
Raleigh, and another is nearly ready to go, aud also $2 00 iu money. 
On May 10th, 1911, they held Memorial exercises and decorated 
each fallen heros grave with flags and roses. They have helped 
the sick Veterans of their town all the year. Last Christmas their 
leader made them a cake, a piece for every Veteran in their borders 
and these were carried by the little folks with cheerful words and 
happy greetings for the Chiistmas season. One old veteran was 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 159 

sick for a long time, and it was no unusual thing for their leadsr to 
hear of their carrying butter, milk, nice crackers, and many other 
good things to this faithful old man that still feels the weight of 
the hardships felt during 61 and 65. When they gathered for a 
meeting, first one little tot and then another would tell of what they 
had done, and then they would ask of their leader if she thought 
Mrs. Thrash would feel proud of them. She always told them yes, 
Mrs. Thrash thinks you are the smartest little band of workers she 
has, and when a letter came to them from Mrs. Thrash's own pen, 
they were so proud; so with these thoughts always in their mind 
they worked harder than ever to do something nice for others. One 
little girl reported she had been and read "Mother Goose'' to the 
oldest Veteran in town, he aged 80, she aged 5 years, and I was told 
by him he enjoyed it more than anything that had happened to him 
since the war. At fhe next meeting she wanted to know if I had 
told Mrs. Thrash. So Mrs Thrash was told of their interest, and 
she sent to each one a certificate, and they think just lots of it. I 
feel like I must tell you how they conduct their meetings. They 
open with prayer, followed by roll call, and reading of the last 
minutes, and then "best of all," as one liit'.e tot says, we give all 
the money we can. While the older ones are talkiug of what is 
most needed, and best to b^ done, the little ones are eating pop- 
corn, and getting ready to serve tea, etc., to the older ones when 
the meeting is over (This oi course, is prepared beforehand by 
their leader, for their use.) They use their doll cups, etc., and we 
are children together. They use the "Children's Catechism," and 
enjoy its use. One or the other will give us a recitation, hence we 
spend a happy hour together They have helped on the monument 
fund, and have now a nice little sura in bank. They have kept 
busy all the time. On Lee-Jackson day they held, at the home of 
their leader, a Confederate tea, and bazaar. The little folks wore 
white dresses and red and white sashes and served to each guest as 
she came a cup of tea, chocolate or coffee as their wishes were made 
known. Thin collars, handkerchiefs and other useful articles were 
sold and the time was also spent pleasantly with music and song, 
thus a nice sum was realized. 
The officers are: 

Mrs. R. C. Bridger, Leader; Miss Lillian Shaw, 1st V. Pres.; 2nd

A TRIBUTE OF LOVE 

The Guilford Chapter of the Daughters of the Confeder- 
acy, mourns the passing away of one of its most beloved, en- 
thusiastic, faithful and efficient members — Miss Alice D. Nel- 
son, who, on April the fifth, entered into rest. 

She was a charter member, served faithfully and most 
acceptably as president of this chapter at one time and held 
other offices, as treasurer and secretary. At the time of her 
death, she was Chairman of the Monument Committee, and 
was deeply interested in carrying forward this work, which 
lay very near her heart and for which she worked with 
untiring energy. 

Resolved: That with deep sorrow, we mourn our friend, 
so richly gifted with all the lovely and lovable qualities of 
perfect womanhood, endowed with fine intellect, wonderful 
sympathy, broad charity, all the charm and dignity of a true 
gentlewoman — with a noble devotion to duty, influenced ever 
by a sweet christian spirit. Her's was a life inspiring and 
enduring in its influence, a solace in the knowledge that her 
death is but a beautiful translation to perfect peace, joy, rest, 
and glory at the Throne of the Most High. 

Resolved: That this tribute of love be spread upon our 
records and a copy be sent with our heartfelt sympathy to 
the greatly bereaved family.

OF THE 

SIXTEENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 

OP THE 

UNITED DAUGHTERS OF THE CONFEDERACY. 

NORTH CAROLINA DIVISION. 



First Day — Morning Session. 

In the historic city of Salisbury situated in the Piedmont 
section of North Carolina, and in sight of the Blue Ridge 
Mountains, the Sixteenth Annual Convention of the N. C. 
Division, II. D. C, was called to order. 

The program was opened by a beautiful violin selection 
by Mrs. Kitchin, accompanied by Miss Lula Garner. Fol- 
lowing this was the most beautiful and touching prayer by 
her whom we all love and honor, our Miss Hettie James. 

In appropriate words, and most interesting Hon. John S. 
Henderson, one of Salisbury's most prominent citizens and 
loyal supporters of the Daughters of the Confederacy turned 
over the keys of the city to us. 

In beautiful and most touching words the address of wel- 
come from the Robert F. Hoke Chapter was given by the 
gentle, the lovely Mrs. Tiernan. Who does not feel the 
keenest interest when the name of "Christian Ried" is spoken, 
especially to all having read "The Land of the Sky." 

In befitting words, Mrs. F. M. Williams, President of the 
X. ( '. Division, responded to these addresses. 

Then in her most gracious and graceful manner Mrs. John 
S. Henderson, President of the Robert F. Hoke Chapter, 
turned over the gavel to the President, who called the Six- 
teenth Annual Convention to order.

PRESIDENT'S REPORT. 

Dear Daughter Friends: 

It fills my heart with joy and gladness to again greet you in this 
our Sixteenth Annual Convention, and may our sessions be fraught 
with such good will and harmony that all our work may redound 
to the greatest good of our beloved organization. 

When last year you did me the greatest of all honors in your 
power and for a third time placed me at the head of thfs Division, 
I accepted with the determination to, if possible, give yet greater 
energy and zeal to the work of the Confederacy. How I have sue- 



10 MlNUTES OF THE SIXTEENTH AxXTAL CONVENTION 

ceeded in carrying out my determination remains for you to judge. 

This year has been by all odds the most strenuous one of any, 
during the years it has been my pleasure to serve you as Recording 
Secretary or President, but at all times the business of the Division 
has taken precedence of any other call. There seems to have been 
a steady increase of interest ever since the close of the last Con- 
vention, and Chapters seem to be continually awakening to the 
great fact of what it really means to be a Daughter of the Confed- 
eracy. 

While we can report no new U. D. C. Chapters formed this year 
my pen has been by no means idle in trying to awaken interest 
in new places and the need of a suitable leader in many instances 
seemed the only drawback to the organizing of several new Chap- 
ters. But in the old Chapters there has been much greater en- 
deavor than heretofore to increase of membership and to draw 
the very many eligible women into the fold. 

The work among the children has been fine and the Chairman 
of that Committee has done much to increase interest along this 
line. The idea of dividing the larger and smaller children or the 
boys and girls in a town into two Chapters has taken hold in some 
places with great results. The new Chapters formed this year 
among children are the Thomasville Grays at Thomasville, the 
James A. Weston and Dixie-Grays at Hickory, the Orren Smith at 
Henderson and Jefferson Davis at Weldon. 

How few of us stop to study this work among the children and 
realize how great it has been in our Division. How many of you 
are aware that it is almost as old as the Division itself. As early 
as 1897 we find that Mrs. Margaret Call organized the first Chil- 
dren Chapter in her home town, the Washington Grays, and at the 
Convention of 1898 we find them presenting a portrait of General 
Bryan Grimes. In December, "98, Mrs. Margaret Branch Sexton 
organized in Charlotte the second one, the Julia Jackson, and from 
that time on the Children's Chapters continued to grow until now 
they number forty-one. 

Your attention is especially called to the date of the organization 
of this Second Chapter for last winter your President's attention 
was called to a claim made in the Veteran that this Chapter was 
formed in 1908 and by other than Mrs. Sexton. 

During the past year I have written some 3,000 letters and 
cards, answering all the day they reached me, this rule only hav- 
ing been broken when I was absent from home. I have signed and 
sent out 500 U. D. C. certificates, besides letters and papers from 
the general organization, demit and badge blanks. 

Just here I would call your special attention to the great neces- 
sity of every registered Daughter having a U. D. C. certificate. No 
longer does it remain optional as to whether or not a Daughter shall 
herself purchase a certificate. It is not the member's duty to see to 
this. The General Constitution requires that every Chapter present 
to every member on joining or to every old member without one 
a U. D. C. certificate. All the past year have I endeavored to im- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 11 

press this fact upon Chapter Presidents. Some have responded 
by ordering for the entire Chapter, but there are still many among 
the older members particularly, who are without them. In furnish- 
ing to old members however bear in mind the fact that they must 
be signed by the officers in office when presented and cannot be 
ante dated. 

Our Educational work in the State is now on a fine basis, and of all 
the work done by the Divisions first and foremost should stand 
this of educating the sons and daughters of Confederate Soldiers 
and sending them forth to teach the truth to coming generations. 
Many local scholarships under the U. D. C. are scattered from one 
end of the State to another, but it is to those at the Greensboro 
Normal to which I would call your undivided attention. The three 
girls are there and the Division stands pledged to meet their 
expenses of $150 each. Your honor as Daughters has been pledged. 
Many Chapters meet this fund regularly, but many others pay no 
attention to it. My friends wake up to this work. Send in your 
contribution to the Educational fund so that the money may be on 
hand to meet the quarterly payments and not embarrass your Presi- 
dent, Treasurer and Chairman of Committee. 

During the past twelve months the Division has seen the com- 
pletion of one of its greatest works. On June 10th, the veil fell 
from the monument to Henry L. Wyatt, erected through your efforts 
and at your instigation, and it was the honor shown your Presi- 
dent that the Wyatt Committee selected her to present this monu- 
ment to the great State for which Wyatt bled and died. Too much 
praise cannot be given to your able chairman Miss Margaret Ether- 
edge and her assistant Mrs. Josephus Daniels for their untiring zeal 
and energy in pushing forward this work, and at the same time 
we owe a debt of gratitude to the sculptor, Mr. Borgeum, for his 
magnificent conception of the subject. A large laurel wreath was 
placed at the base of the statue as a tribute from this Division. 

One more Division monument have we yet uncompleted, but 
we trust that before another Convention rolls around, the one to 
the Boy Soldiers of the University may stand upon that beautiful 
campus to speak to the hundreds, daily passing to and fro, of the 
bravery and heroism of the University men of the '60's. 

Among the Chapter monuments unveiled this year* we find the 
one at Hertford completed by the Perquimans Chapter. The Frank 
Bennett Children's Chapter of Wadesboro have concentrated their 
energies on a Confederate Memorial Hall, which they opened in 
April with appropriate ceremonies. The J. D. Moore Children's 
Chapter in Gastonia has raised the fund of $300 to purchase the 
statue which will crown the top of the monument the Gastonia 
U. D. C. Chapter hope to unveil this month. 

And my friends let us not forget that the two great U. D. C. 
monuments, Arlington and Shiloh, are calling to us to complete 
them. Let us put our shoulders to the wheel and push them to 
unveiling, and then let us bend our undivided energies to tee erec- 
tion of the greatest of them all, North Carolina's monument at 



12 Minutes of the Sixteenth Anneal Convention 

Gettysburg. A monument that will tell the truth of all the men of 
this glorious old State stood for, which will tell how Petigrew led 
that famous charge, how North Carolina's sons went farthest and 
staid longest upon that bloody field and how none ever did or can 
surpass them. 

The newspaper reports lately credit Gen. Julian S. Carr as saying 
he had a grudge against the Daughters of the Confederacy for not 
taking up the Stonewall Jackson Memorial. Surely if this is true 
that fine old veteran is ignorant of one of the U. D. C.'s most strong- 
est rules. The U. D. C. can take up no general work such as that 
without the consent and endorsement of the President General, 
nor can a Division do so without endorsement of Division Presi- 
dents and neither of these were asked for, hence the North Carolina 
Division stands exonerated. 

Your attention is very particularly called to the rules and regula- 
tions attached to applications for membership. In the first place 
no great nieces can hereafter be admitted, but this law in no way 
effects those already Daughters. In fact in every instance it is 
urged that application be made through material aid by lineal de- 
scent man or woman, rather than collateral descent through sol- 
diers. This collateral soldier relation can be given in remarks. 

The fact that each application be endorsed by one or two veterans, 
requires that these men give Company and regiment or camp 
so as to know they are veterans. These two matters if strictly 
attended to will save your Registrar much trouble and much ex- 
pense to the Division. 

The question of awarding Crosses of Honor has been greatly 
misunderstood causing very much confusion. After many applica- 
tions for August 23rd had been returned by the Custodian General 
as "too late" your President requested the Division Recorder to 
take up the matter with Mrs. Raines in order to see if we could 
not excuse them, but alas, only to meet with positive refusal. Our 
only hope rests in getting the Washington Convention to extend 
the time every where till January 19, 1913. 

This year North Carolina has received more recognition from our 
President General than has ever been our good fortune before, and 
is therefore represented upon more committees. On the two great 
committees of Arlington and Shiloh, Mrs. I. W. Faison is Director 
of the former and your State President of the latter. Mrs. Faison 
is also Vice-Chairman of the Historical Souvenirs Committee. 
Besides these the following ladies represent North Carolina on 
the various committees: Mrs. Martin Willard, President General's 
badge; Mrs. Leo D. Heartt, Program; Mrs. H. L. Riggins, Relief 
work; Mrs. Eugene Little, War Between the States; Mrs. E. F. 
Hall, Transportation, while your President has the high honor of 
being made chairman of the most important of this year's commit- 
tees, that of the Revision of the U. D. C. Constitution and By-Laws. 

Your special attention is called to the strict observance of the 
request to send all money to the Division Treasurer by money orders 
alone. We cannot afford to pay exchange on checks, and while 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 13 

some towns may be exempt from this rule of the bank, the Division 
cannot make exceptions to its rules. Much confusion and letter 
writing could be saved your Treasurer by adhering strictly to this 
request. 

And just here I would state that many letters could be saved 
all State officers and a good deal of expense to the Division if 
Chapter officers would only consult the Minutes and inform them- 
selves exactly to whom to write for various blanks. The law re- 
quiring all general work and communications to pass through the 
hands of the Division President, while a most excellent one, causes 
a heavy expense to said Divisions, as everything must be forwarded 
to chapters as soon as received and not held back till a convenient 
time. 

Your President has been called upon, during the past year, to 
represent you in two very noted ways. First by being placed by 
Col. Ashley Home upon his committee to select the design and 
manage the erection of his monument to the Confederate Women 
of North Carolina, and in the second place by being chosen by 
Major Orren Smith, the designer of the Stars and Bars, to present 
a flag of the original design to the general organization in Wash- 
ington. Our President General writes that this presentation will 
take place at the opening exercises Tuesday night, immediately 
after the response to the addresses of welcome. For several years 
your President has made a thorough study of our U. D. C. work, 
its needs and interests and therefore desires to present to you at 
this Convention a few suggestions, which she would like for you 
to take up separately and thoroughly discuss. 

1st. That we adopt the system that has worked so well in sev- 
eral other States, of dividing the State into several districts, which 
shall be under the immediate supervision of a District chairman. 
To this chairman be assigned the duty of forming new Chapters 
and in every way encouraging the work of those under her. Each 
district to hold a meeting of one or two days in some town during 
the spring, when the work be talked over and information given. 

2nd. That every Chapter be required to have a Registrar. 

3rd. That your President be instructed to immediately have 
printed the account of the organization of the Division and 
Minutes of first and second Conventions. Also that she have a set 
of all North Carolina Minutes bound for preservation. In suggesting 
your President to do this work, it is done because she has secured 
a full set of all printed Minutes, and has also compiled the notes 
of the two first Conventions. 

4. In view of the fact that our Constitution is silent as to whether 
or not Presidents and Leaders are entitled to representation other 
than as delegates, and in order to settle this question for the future 
the suggestion is made that this matter be decided now. As it is 
the question of such representation must be left entirely with 
Chapters. Our Conventions are now so large that it is difficult, 
nay impossible, for small towns to entertain them. Your President 
would in view of such a fact suggest that hereafter the rule be 



14 Minutes of the Sixteenth Anneal Convention 

made requiring each Chapter President to be its first delegate by 
virtue of her office, with duly elected alternate, said alternate under 
no circumstances being entitled to cast a President's personal vote. 
That as Leaders represent the Children's Chapters and as we do 
not recognize Children in our Conventions, that said Leaders be 
entitled to personal representation, but no alternates. 

5th. That special Resolutions of Appreciation be sent to Col. 
Ashley Home for the great work he has done in erecting the monu- 
ment to the North Carolina Women of the Confedeiacy and a com- 
mittee be appointed to draw up said resolutions. 

6th. That a new office, that of Director of Children's Chapters, 
be created. 

During the past year it has been my pleasure to visit a number 
of Chapters and every where many honors have been extended to 
me as your President. Early in December I attended a most de- 
lightful entertainment in Raleigh and listened to our Historian 
General, Miss Rutherford's, delightful talk on old times, the next 
day attending a meeting of the Johnston-Pettigrew Chapter. Later 
in the winter I made a delightful visit to Tarboro where i ad- 
dressed the William Dorsey Pender Chapter, and was the guest 
of the D. A. R. Chapter on Washington's birthday. In April I 
attended the meeting of the Revision Commitee in Charleston and 
at a delightful tea given us by Miss Poppenheim met many of 
North Carolina's sons and daughters. Returning from there I 
stopped over in Wadesboro and took part in the delightful exercises 
of the Frank Bennett Children's Chapter at the opening of their 
Confederate Museum. 

On May 20th you were represented at the unveiling of the tablet 
commemorative of the Mecklenburg Declaration erected by the 
Colonial Dames, and your greetings extended to that body. Mid- 
summer brought a most delightful meeting with the Harnett Chap- 
ter at Lillington, when a number from neighboring Chapters were 
present to greet us. It was with regret that circumstances com- 
pelled me to decline invitations to attend the Veterans Re-union 
in Mobile, the unveiling of the monument to General John Morgan 
and the laying of the corner-stone of the Gastonia monument. 

And now my dear friends, we must pause in our recital of what 
has been full of joy and gladness and turn for a moment to a 
darker side of our work. The angel of death has visited many 
of our Chapters, but we have been spared the loss of any of our 
honorary or ex-State officers. Yet while this is true, the Daughters 
have seen one of North Carolina's most shining lights flicker and 
grow dimmer till it ceased to shine to mortal eyes, but only became 
more luminous upon another shore. There has passed from among 
us that noble, retiring, brave, true Confederate Soldier General 
Robert F. Hoke, and we would pause to pay tribute to so true a 
Confederate, so noble a Christian, so loyal a North Carolinian. 

And now to you Dear Daughters of our beloved Old North State, 
I have rendered the account of my stewardship. Whether it has 
been as you would have had it I cannot tell, but truthfully and 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 15 

faithfully I have given to your service the best that was in me, 
never letting anything interfere with your business. 

To you one and all, to those present as to those absent, I would 
extend my heartfelt thanks for your generous dealings with all my 
short comings, for your kind thoughtfulness at all times, for your 
very many words and letters of encouragement and good cheer. 
The pathway has not always been strewn with roses, but your love 
has covered up the thorns. For my successor I bespeak the same 
kindness and good will you have shown towards me. 

FANNIE RANSOM WILLIAMS, 
President North Carolina Division. 



SUGGESTIONS FOR COMMITTEE. 

1st. That we adopt the system, that has worked so well in several 
other States, of dividing the State into districts, which shall be 
under immediate supervision of District Chairman. To this chair- 
man be assigned the duty of forming new chapters and in every 
way encouraging the work of those under her. Each district to hold 
a meeting one or two days during the spring, when the work can be 
talked over and information given. 

2nd. That our Treasurer be bonded, said bond to be paid for out 
of Division funds. 

3rd. That your President be instructed to immediately have 
printed the account of the organization of the Division and Minutes 
of first and second Conventions. Also that she have a set of all 
North Carolina Minutes bound for preservation. In suggesting your 
President to do this work it is done because she has secured a 
full set of all printed Minutes and has also compiled the notes of 
the first Conventions. 

4th. In view of the fact that our Constitution is silent as to 
whether or not Presidents and Leaders are entitled to representa- 
tion other than as delegates, and in order to settle this matter for 
the future the suggestion is made that this matter be decided now. 
As it is now, the question of such representation must be left 
entirely with Chapters. Our Conventions are so large that it is 
difficult, nay impossible, for small towns to entertain them. Your 
President would in view of such a fact suggest that hereafter the 
rule be made requiring each Chapter President to be its first dele- 
gate by virtue of her office, with a duly elected alternate. Said 
alternate, under no circumstances being entitled to cast a Presi- 
dent's personal vote. That as Leaders represent the Children's 
Chapters and as we do not recognize children in our Conventions, 
that said Leaders be entitled to personal representation, but no 
alternates. 

5th. That special resolutions of appreciation be sent to Col. 
Ashley Horne for the great work he has done in erecting the monu- 
ment to the North Carolina Women of the Confederacy and a com- 
mitee be appointed to draw up said resolutions. 



Hi Minutes ok tup: Sixteenth Annual Convention 

6. That a new office, that of Director of Children's Chapters, be 
created. 

7. That every Chapter be requested to have a Registrar. 

THE REPORT OF THE RECORDING SECRETARY N. C. DIVISION 
U. D. C. SALISBURY CONVENTION. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Words cannot express my heartfelt appreciation of the high honor 
you North Carolina Daughters conferred upon me and it is with 
pleasure that I present my third report as your Recording Secretary. 

During the year quite a number of Chapters have been furnished 
application blanks, thereby showing a gratifying increase and en- 
thusiasm. 1,049 application blanks have been sent out. The Chil- 
dren's Chapters have kept apace and 895 blanks have been furnished 
them. 

Am sorry to report no new Chapters, on the other hand none have 
been cancelled, thereby showing the Division has held its own for 
the past year. 561 letters and 269 postals have been written. 

With the hope that my work has been as satisfactory to you as 
it has been a pleasure to me, I again thank you. 
Respectfully submitted, 

JACKSIE DANIEL THRASH. 

Report of the Corresponding Secretary was read in her 
absence by the Recording Secretary and accepted. 

REPORT OF THE STATE CORRESPONDING SECRETARY. 

To the President and Members of the United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy, North Carolina Division: 
The undersigned, Corresponding Secretary of the United Daugh- 
ters of the Confederacy, North Carolina Division, respectfully begs 
leave to submit the following as a report for the fiscal year, ending 
the 7th day of October, 1912. 

Upon assuming the duties of Corresponding Secretary, all com- 
mittees were notified of their respective appointments, the names 
thereof, at the same time, being sent to the chairmen of the different

All work has been given prompt attention. 

It is with much regret that the writer is unable to be present at 
the annual State Meeting of the Organization. 

I have considered it an honor to serve you in the capacity of 
Corresponding Secretary. I do not feel, however, that my services 
can be of value to you in the future, on account of being so far from 
the President. I therefore tender my resignation. 
Respectfully, 

LILLIAN BONNER WILLIAMS,

State Corresponding Secretary. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy.

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Once more I come before you to report work done: 264 applica- 
tions registered, 28 transfers, nine of which were from outside 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 19 

Divisions, the remaining 18 being from one State Chapter to 
another. 

I have written 221 letters and 64 post-cards and I am sure that 
two-thirds, nay, three-fourths of these were made necessary by the 
failure of Chapter officials to see that Company and Regiment of 
endorsing Veterans were put on application papers, and by the 
hitherto lax methods of registration. 

I suggested in my report to the last Convention, that some action 
be taken in regard to these matters. I now urge it! for out of the 
fullness of two years experience and hard work, I realize that such 
action is absolutely necessary. 

Until this is done, in regard to the endorsing Veterans, the work 
(and the postage bills) of the State Registrar will be doubled. 

Until stricter rules are enforced in regard to registration, a correct 
State Register is impossible. 

To these ends I would make the following suggestions: 

A page in the Minutes, to be devoted to Hints Concerning Regis- 
tration. 

Concerning Veteran endorsers. Can statement of Camp to which 
one belongs be accepted in place of Company and Regiment? Can 
seal of County Clerks be accepted instead of Veteran endorser? 

An emphatic statement that only printed demits can be accepted. 

That great-nieces are no longer eligible. 

That papers must be in by September 15th or State Registrar can- 
not have time to attend to them. Respectfully submitted, 

ANNIE JONES DAVIS.

REPORT OF RECORDER OF CROSSES OF HONOR. 

Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It is with feelings of pride and sadness that I bring my report of 
work done the past year. Pride that we have awarded so many 
crosses, but infinite sadness, when I reflect that there are still 
veterans, who not only desire crosses, but are begging for them, 
and still other veterans who have not heard of our "Cross." 

This year, with the consent of our Custodian General, I asked 
several of the Eastern Counties to take up the work in the adjoin- 
ing Counties where there are no Chapters. (All of the Western coun- 
ties have Chapters.) Several of the Chapters responded enthusias- 
tically; none more so than Pamlico Chapter of Washington; New 
Bern Chapter, of New Bern, and Cape Fear Chapter, of Wilmington. 

August 23rd I accompanied the Wilmington representatives when 
they went to Onslow County to present crosses. The people of 
Onslow had not only invited Judge Clark to make an address and 
prepared a picnic dinner but turned out "enmasse" to show their 
appreciation. The veterans from all sections of the County had 
gathered ; all who were to receive crosses were present, and about 
fifteen others; who, each, begged and plead for a cross. "Just please 
get me one. I never heard of them before. Lady can't you get me 
one?" And so on until we were all in tears. Now ladies, I do not 
want a single one of these old men to be disappointed. We must, 
if possible, get them crosses. 

Owing to a misunderstanding, a great many Chapters were under 
the impression they could get crosses until November 1st, when as 
a fact, North Carolina's time expired August 23rd. As a conse- 
quence I nave twenty-four Chapters on my list, who have either 
sent or written me for applications, varying from one to fourteen. 
Now, that these various Chapters and Veterans may not be disap- 
pointed, I ask you to draw up a motion to be sent to the General 
Convention at Washington, D. O, asking that "In view of the mis- 
understanding as to dates, the North Carolina Division be allowed 
to secure crosses for all applications now in hands of Chapters." 

Last year when Mrs. Raines report was made, we determined 
that North Carolina must present one thousand crosses this year; 



36 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

and, by hearty co-operation we have passed the mark. During the 
year, we have awarded 1169 crosses. Of these 956 were to veterans, 
54 to widows, 159 to descendants and 48 were duplicates, as follows:

My dear friends: In laying down my duties and honors of the

have shown and the sympathy you have given me in my failures 
and shortcomings. Respectfully submitted, 

GERTRUDE BAGLEY CREASY. 



In the absence of the Historian, her report was read by the 
Recording-Secretary and accepted. 

REPORT OF MISS REBECCA CAMERON, HISTORIAN. 

Madam President: In submitting my report I regret that it should 
show such a small harvest of results from so much work and 
thought as has been expended by our Historian General who, in 
January last, sent at no little expense and trouble, a large package 
of circular letters (already folded and in envelopes) in which she 
urged the importance of immediate and zealous historical work, 
and outlining an admirable plan for its prosecution. 

To this, I added a circular letter that I had written, a copy of 
which I herewith append: 

Historian's Letter, North Carolina Division. 

My Dear Madam: In sending out to you the Historian General's 
circular letter, it seems best to add to it a personal appeal from your 
own Division Historian. For ten years you have honored me with 
that important office. Many others could have discharged its duties 
with more abundant results, I have no doubt. None could have 



38 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

given to it more heartfelt devotion and interest. And now, I am 
making a personal appeal to each one of you, my fellow workers 
in the field of history; begging you to take up your work with 
renewed interest and devotion; and work as you have never worked 
before, to make this year the most memorable in our annals'. We 
are pledged by our Constitution to preserve the History of the War 
Between the States. And this means that each Chapter in each 
Division shall preserve its own local history of men, and measures 
and events. 

Not wide areas of general history, thet other writers have al- 
ready recorded, and thus rescued from oblivion, but the noteworthy 
incidents that happened in your own individual localities, viz: 
towns, neighborhoods, and counties. 

You are to go personally to the men and women who were the 
actors, or the sufferers and get from them their story of it. 

Write it as nearly as possible in their own words; be absolutely 
exact as to names, dates, localities and commands if it happens to 
have been a fight or a public event. 

And don't soften harsh or brutal facts; don't bring a post bellum 
sentiment to "Smooth War's horrid front." 

"Paint Oliver Cromwell, warts and all." 

Likewise remember that the women of the sixties have also 
stories to tell, that are worth as much in their way as those of the 
men. We want them all. Carefully study Miss Rutherford's plan; 
and follow it literally. 

It has been very carefully studied out, and she is experienced in 
the work. (Also she is of North Carolina ancestry, as a county and 
town testify; and she is very proud of it, as she well may be. Most 
of us are.) When we make our Division report next November in 
Washington City let it be the best one of all. Let it stand first as 
North Carolina has ever been. 

The eyes of strangers, and foreigners, will be upon us there. 
Let us shine forth gloriously. 

We sent more men to the front than any other State; we left 
more dead upon the bloody trail from Bethel to Appomattox. We 
went "farthest" every where, therefore we have more history to 
record than any other State. Let us, Oh, let us spring forward now, 
and save the shining fragments that we still can grasp. 

They are going away so fast, those matchless men. Soon the 
seal of death will be irrevocably placed upon brave lips that now 
can speak. 

"The thin grey line" grows thinner all the while. Death will 
not stop for us, to wait our tardy leisure. Death will not. un- 
lock closed mouths for us. We must forever lose what we do 
not now ask for. And I pray you, I urge and beseech you, to go 
forth now to the gleaning that is left, the little that is spared from 
the tide of half a century of lost years. Soon, Oh, so soon, the 
bugles will blow "Taps" over the last of the grey clad men; and 
we can never then hear the stories that they only could tell. Will 
you, oh, can you let them be lost? 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 39 

Your office is a sacred trust, you have accepted it, and thus have 
pledged yourself to do the work that belongs to it, and I am sure 
as the daughters, wives and sisters of those men who never failed 
Lee, you will as faithfully do your duty as did they. 

Hoping to hear from you, if only a line, and that you will gather 
a rich harvest of historical papers, each honorably striving to excel 
all the rest, I am Very faithfully yours, 

REBECCA CAMERON, 
Historian N. C. Division U. D. C. 

Hillsboro, N. C, January 22nd, 1912. 

We mailed a copy to each one of the eighty-eight Chapters in the 
Division, asking for an immediate acknowledgment, and a report 
of Chapter's historical work by the middle of September. No replies 
were received by me, and only one Chapter reported its work. 

"The Roanoke Minute Men" Chapter of Littleton, through their 
admirable Historian, Mrs. J. P. Leach, sent me on September 
12th, a list of nine papers that had been read before their Chapter. 

On Sept. 4th, Miss Jessica Randolph Smith, a member of the 
Vance County Chapter U. D. C, who has the true historical instinct, 
as befits the daughter of that maker of history, Major Orren Ran- 
dolph Smith, sent me valuable memoranda of the organization and 
services of the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry, which I 
returned to her to embody in one of her own excellent papers; 
and a record of General W. H. Cheek, read before the Henry L. 
Wyatt Camp, U. C. V., written by Mrs. M. J. O'Neil. Also an admir- 
able paper on "Arlington," as it was, in the days of the "Lees" and 
as it is to-day in its Military aspect, not the home of the living but 
of "The Sacred Dead," with descriptions of the head stones over 
every grave and speaking of how beautiful is the "Confederate Sec- 
tion" where lie our own Grey Clad Soldiers in the center of which, 
will be laid the corner stone of The Confederate Monument, which 
we hope will be the grandest work of Sir Moses Ezekiel. In this 
paper was also given a brief synopsis of the great work done by 
Dr. S. E. Lewis in whose brain the idea originated of having our 
"Confederate Section" at Arlington and by whom the "Charles 
Broadway Rouse" Camp of Washington was formed, to assist in 
this work which before long included the caring for all graves of 
Confederate Soldiers who died in Northern prisons or in Hospitals. 

This paper was the work of Mrs. A. J. Cheek and read before 
the Henderson Camp by her on "Arlington Day." 

Mrs. J. S. Henderson, of your hostess Chapter, sent a most val- 
uable and delightfully written memorial sketch of that gallant 
Colonel, Charles F. Fisher, the first officer of the North Carolina 
line killed in battle and Colonel of the Sixth North Carolina Vol- 
unteers which was really the first regiment raised in the State, 
written by the Hon. John S. Henderson, of Salisbury, and read be- 
fore the Mecklenburg Chapter of the U. D. C, in which address he 
shows clearly that the successful issue of the first great Victory of 
the War, the first battle of Manassas, was due to Colonel Fisher 



40 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

and the gallant Sixth, who at the supreme moment of crisis; by 
their heroic capture of Rickett's and Griffin's batteries changed 
disaster into victory. A victory, however, that cost us dear for 
Colonel Fisher gave his life for it. 

This is, as far as I know, all the Historical material that has been 
harvested in response to the appeals sent out. 

Understanding early in September, that some question had al- 
ready been raised as to which of the Confederate Flags Major Orren 
Randolph Smith designed and set afloat in Louisburg, March 18th, 
1861, I wrote to Mrs. Robert Davis, of the Jos. J. Davis Chapter, 
U. D. C, at Louisburg, and asked her to take steps to secure the 
affidavits of some of the people who had been present on the occa- 
sion of the first unfurling of "The Stars and Bars" so that the 
question would be forever settled authoritatively. She replied at 
once saying that they were already at work trying to secure them, 
but so far, October 2nd, the result of their efforts have not reached 
me. This I consider a very important matter not only in justice 
to Major Smith but as a question of the truth of history, and of 
State pride. 

We should have learned the value of an authoritative record from 
the vexed question of the date of the Mecklenburg Declaration of 
Independence, May 20th, 1775, and I am sorry the affidavits have 
not come in time for this report. 

I have written one hundred and fifty letters and twenty-five pos- 
tal cards, and given desired information to the Historians of several 
of our sister States. 

It is not worth while for me to urge upon our Historians the 
importance of prompt work. I have said all that I could for the 
past ten years and apparently without avail. 

But. none the less, I wish with all my heart I knew the "open 
sesame to their hearts. Respectfully submitted, 

REBECCA CAMERON, Historian.

Charlotte, N. C, October 8th, 1912. 
Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The contributions for Shiloh Monument for the year just closed 
have doubled that of any previous year. 

I can not say too much in praise of the Newton Enterprise in 
getting out the Shiloh Edition. The observance of Shiloh day at the 
April meeting has proven instructive as well as profitable. 

Twenty-three (23) Chapters, ' four (4) Children's Chapters and 
one (1) Camp have responded to the cause.

Henry L. Wyatt Committee report read by its Chairman, 
Miss Etheredge, accepted with a motion of especial thanks 
to Miss Etheredge in the completion of her work. 

REPORT OF HENRY WYATT MONUMENT COMMITTEE. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

For four years we came to you telling you of the monument that 
was to be. To-day, this report could be made in the one brief 
sentence — The Henry Wyatt Monument is completed, unveiled, pai'd 
for, and Twenty-eight Dollars ($28.00) left over. 

June the 10th was a very proud and happy day for North Caro- 
lina. Time now, and space in the Minutes, forbid me telling you 
just how proud especially our committee felt. You who were there 
will agree with us that it was a perfect day. 

It was my pleasure to be in Raleigh several days before the 
unveiling, and fully appreciate the skilful planning of the people 
there to make the completion of our work a grand success. They 
did all they could, and more too — not a request was refused nor a 
wish ungratified — and the expenses of the unveiling even seemed 
a joy to them. 

The welcome given to all the visitors was truly like "ye olden 
days." 

There was an elegant dinner prepared for veterans and visiting 
military companies. Mrs. Josephus Daniels entertained the Daugh- 
ters and other guests at a beautiful luncheon served at her home. 

We thank dear old Raleigh, beautiful City of Oaks, for the many 
kindnesses extended to us; and to three faithful women are we 
especially grateful — these three women are, Mrs. Josephus Daniels, 
Mrs. Leo Heartt and Miss Denson. 

When any of you go to Raleigh be sure to go and look into the 
face of the Henry Wyatt Statue. You can't but feel the spirit that 
sent the young hero into the face of death. 

Mr. Borglum has said that "America erects too many monuments 
to men, not ideals." In this he most nearly archives it, with his genius 



4:8 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

consecrated to the pure ideal of an eternal truth, he has thrown 
into his work his entire skill. As the clay responded beneath his 
hands it became something real fed with this ideal — the spirit of 
the Confederate soldier — the true patriotism that sent him to arms, 
the spirit of determination that carried him through four years of 
fighting and hardships, the unconquerable courage with which he 
laid down his arms to return to a country of ruins. 

As this is my first work done for our cause, I wish to thank you 
individually and collectively who have given me such cordial sup- 
port in carrying on your work. While the Henry Wyatt Committee 
stands dismissed, I shall ever feel a special interest in each of you, 
for united we stood for the best we could give our State. 

Oh, the sweetness and sadness of thinking of the millions who 
may gaze upon the sculptered ideal of Henry Wyatt — as they view 
the grand proportions and stern, resolute expression of this youth- 
ful hero going forth to battle, may the same emotions that stir our 
hearts make them know that their fathers fought and died for what 
they knew to be right.

Memorial Arch Committee report, in the absence of the 
Chairman, Airs. K. E. Moffitt, was read by the Recording 
Secretary, and accepted. 

REPORT ON MEMORIAL ARCH. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy of North 
Carolina: 

I beg to submit the following report as Chairman of the Me- 
morial Arch or Gateway to the Confederate section of Oakwood 
Cemetery in Raleigh, N. C. 

This object has been under the consideration of this Convention 
for nine or ten years and the fund has suddenly grown, but has not 
as yet reached a point to justify the beginning of the actual work 
of construction. 

By reference to the minutes of the past Conventions you will 
find a history of the work and its progress up to 1908, when there 
seemed quite a falling off of interest in the project attributable to 
several causes that can be adjusted as time goes on. Be that as 
it may, we hope the Chapters will repose sufficient confidence in 
the Committee to set aside all differences of opinion that may have 
existed regarding the manner of inscribing the names of Chapters 
on the Arch. Let the funds be raised first, and then let the Presi- 
dent appoint a wise and competent committee, who will endeavor 
"to regulate the article of expense as economically as they can with 
justice to the wishes of the Society." 

According to the minutes of 1905 to 1908 forty-six Chapters have 
responded to the call for Twenty Dollars each. 

U. D. ('.— 4 



50 Minutes of the Sixteenth Ax mat Convention 

The amount now in the hands of the Treasurer is $1,048.77 — a 
very small increase in two years, and this increase principally from 
interest on the funds. Thanks are due our treasurers for their wise 
investments. 

Forty-five Chapters are yet to be heard from and to these we ear- 
nestly appeal to come forward and pay in their quota. 

Your Chairman, in order to awaken new interest among the 
seemingly dormant Chapters has divided these into six sections, 
alloting to each member of the Committee about eight chapters, 
these to be situated as nearly as possible in her district. The fol- 
lowing ladies constitute the Committee appointed by the President 
in 1912: 

Mrs. William Bryan, Xew Bern, X. C. 
Mrs. B. N. Mann, Durham, X. C. 
Mrs. O. M. Royster, Hickory, X. C. 
Mrs. Henry Redwood, Asheville, X. C. 

Your Chairman has added the names of Mrs. W. O. VYinstead, of 
Rocky Mount, and Miss Margaret Etheredge, of Selma, X'. C. 

These ladies have had lists sent them with the request to see 
the representatives of the Chapters that have been assigned them, 
and enlist their interest in a work that will perpetuate, not only 
their devotion to the Confederate soldier, but will remain as a 
lasting monument to the U. D. C. Chapters of North Carolina. 

This is about all that can be done for the present, as the work 
of construction cannot begin until all Chapters are heard from, 
for it cannot appear as the work of the United Chapters unless 
they are represented. 

With best wishes for the success of your Convention, I remain, 

Cordially yours, 

MRS. E. E. MOFFITT, 
Chairman of the Memorial Arch Committee. 
1014 West Franklin Street, 
Richmond, Ya. 

Motion made by Mrs. Winstead of Rocky Mounl : 

That the balance in Treasury of the Henry L. Wyatt Monument 
Fund, with the permission of Miss Etheredge, be turned over to the 
Memorial Arch Committee. 

Seconded and carried. 

Motion made by Mrs. Martin Willard: 

That we accept the site offered by the City of Raleigh upon which 
the Memorial Arch is to be placed and with the funds on hand, ap- 
propriation of the Oakwood Cemetery, and contributions from new 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 51 

Chapters; that a committee of six be appointed with Mrs. Moffitt as 
Chairman, to accept a suitable design and erect the Arch as soon as 
possible. 

Seconded and carried. 

The Chapters were urged to make extra efforts to complete 
this work at their earliest opportunity. 

Mr. Atkinson, of Albemarle, was escorted to the platform 
by Mrs. Overman, and spoke most interestingly on what his 
school is doing for the Education of poor girls. 

Motion was made by Mrs. London that a letter of consola- 
tion be written by Mrs. Josephus Daniels. This was done. 

In her most charming manner Mrs. Overman extended in- 
vitations of the local Chapter of the Daughters of the Ameri- 
can Revolution to a Reception in the afternoon and from the 
Robert F. Hoke Chapter for Luncheon. These were accepted 
and motion was made to adjourn.

room. 

Children's Chapters report read by the Chairman of the 
Committee, Mrs. Gordon Finger, and accepted. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CHILDREN'S CHAPTER. 

Madam President, Fellow Workers: 

The thought that the U. D. C. is a unique organization among all 
the patriotic orders of the world perpetuating as it does the heroes 
and principles of a lost cause has been expressed on many occa- 
sions; but the more unique and greater responsibility that neces- 
sarily accompanies and grows out of this distinction I have never 
heard emphasized. It is that we shall teach truth untinctured with 
prejudice; that we shall revere the past without injecting its rancor 
into the present and the future; that we shall teach our children 
the facts about the opponents of our men in arms with no embitter- 
ments of hatred; in fact to carry out General Lee's injunction in 
"The Last Word of the Confederacy ". 

Remember, we are one country now. Bring up your children to 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 53 

be above all, Americans. This work of training young Americans 
that Lee spent his days after the war in performing, your committee 
has done in a humble way. 

Five new Chapters have been organized since last Convention and 
more than five others have had preliminary work of organization 
done with such hopes of success, we believe another year will see 
them perfected. 

Our Conference of Leaders was held Thursday, October 10 of 
this Convention. For inspiration, direction and encouragement we 
are indebted to Mrs. Frances Fisher Tiernan for a beautiful mes- 
sage of greeting. 

A delightful talk on "Attractive Methods of Teaching Confederate 
History," was made by Miss Mabel Tuck, of Durham. 

Program and Entertainment Plans, by Mrs. T. T. Covington, of 
Laurinburg. 

Mrs. Henry Archbell, of Kinston, presented reasons why we need 
a State Magazine for the Children, how we can have one and 
Xproof copies of "Carolina and the Southern Cross," which would 
eminently meet these needs were distributed. The concensus of 
opinion of the leaders being strong approval of the publication the 
editor Mrs. Archbell has designed. 

The sub-committee of award were Mrs. F. M. Williams, Mrs. T. W. 
Thrash and your chairman. Their duty was to award the banner 
donated by Mrs. Thomas L. Craig, of Gastonia, for the Chapter 
doing the best work this year and was made under rules formulated 
by the main committe and followed: 

The points made are: 

I. To that chapter the largest proportion of whose members can 
perfectly recite the Confederate catechism. 

II. To the chapter making the largest proportionate increase in 
its membership. 

III. To the Chapter having the best financial record. This in- 
cludes all actual work; aid to sick or aged veterans, monument 
funds, Soldiers Home, Museum, Education, Confederate flags or 
pictures, anything of value done or secured by Leader and members. 

IV. To the Chapter whose members and Leader have caused the 
greatest number of new Children's chapters to be organized. 

The W. (j. Quackenbush Chapter, Laurinburg, being the successful 
competitor. 

We are indebted to Mr. C. H. Wilmoth, of Charlotte, for donating 
our printed programs of the Children's Conference, the Conference 
this year being the best attended of the three held as a result of 
its time and place, etc., being well known, this Conference also had 
the honor of being the first to be attended by our State President. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MAUDE TURNER FINGER.

All suggestions accepted except one and the following motion 
of Mrs. Marshall Williams substituted : 

That Chapter Presidents come to Convention above the regular 
number of delegates. Also Leaders of Children's Chapters come 
extra. 

Seconded and carried. 

Motion made by Mrs. Winstead who moved also that Di- 
rector of Children's Chapters be made a State Officer. 
Carried. 
Mrs. I. W. Faison made the following motion : 

That the Copy of the U. D. C. State Minutes that is smaller than 
all others, be printed when the Minutes of the 1st and 2nd year of 
this organization be printed, in order that they will be uniform 
size to be bound; provided it is impossible to cut all to same size. 

The report from Portrait Committee read by Mrs. Willard 
and accepted. 

report of portrait committee. 

It is with regret that I submit so little accomplished in the placing 
of portraits. I have written many letters and postals and received 
a few answers. 

Winston has placed one portrait in a county school. Greensboro 
one in the public library. Lenoir one in the public school. 

Payetteville will in the near future place portraits in every school 
in the county. Newton one — Brevard one. 

Pittsboro has one to be presented on January 19. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. F. L. HUGGINS, Chairman. 

Mrs. Hunter Smith, Chairman of the Confederate Wo- 
man's Home Committee read the report and asked the towns 
to offer sites for the establishing of this Home. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON HOME FOR THE CONFEDERATE 

WOMEN. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Your Committee on Home for the Confederate Women comes 
once more to make its annual report on this worthy undertaking. 
Since our last meeting at Winston-Salem practically nothing has 
been done. It seems to your Committee to be wisest and best that 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 55 

we devote our energies to securing a site for the home, and getting 
a building erected and equipped as soon as possible. Without going 
into an argument on the question in this report, we beg to recom- 
mend : 

First. That a representative committee of five from different sec- 
tions of the State be appointed to ask for and receive offers of sites 
and donations for the home, and that this committee be instructed 
to report fully all bids and offers to the proper committee of the Leg- 
islature of North Carolina, that such site may be selected as will be, 
all things considered, the best for the home. 

Second. That this committee be charged with the duty of pre- 
senting to the Legislature of 1913 the claims of the Confederate 
Women of the State, and ask for an appropriation by the Legisla- 
ture of Ten Thousand Dollars for the erection and equipment of 
'buildings and an annual appropriation of Five Thousand Dollars 
for the maintenance of the same. 

Third. That this Committee be authorized to renew the offer 
of the United Daughters of the Confederacy of North Carolina, 
made by the Convention at Rocky Mount in 1910 to furnish this 
building upon its completion. 

Fourth. That the several Local Chapters comprising this Con- 
vention be asked to appoint a special committee and pass suitable 
resolutions and to co-operate with the central committee in getting 
this important matter properly before the people of the Sate and 
before the State Legislature at its Session in 1913. 

While the progress that we are making in our effort to secure 
this home has not been rapid as we would like, yet we are persuaded 
that if our women will work unitedly and enthusiastically we can 
secure this much needed home within the next twelve months. 
Let us make this our chief aim for the year to come, and set our 
hearts on this one thing. We are sure that the good women of 
North Carolina will have sufficient influence with the true manhood 
of the State to secure, at their hands, a place where protection and 
peace will be provided for the faithful women, who must look to 
the benevolence of a grateful Commonwealth to care for them in 
their declining days. In other days they kept the fires burning at 
home, while their husbands and sons were at the front, and we 
feel that we can appeal with confidence to the Old North State in 
the days of their adversity. 
Total amount received and on hand $ 486.21 

Following amounts have been received this year: 

Wm. M. Parsley Chapter, Murfreesboro $ 2.00 

Norfleet-Harrell Chapter, Murfreesboro 10.00

Ask Chapters to please send in bids to Chairman by December

REPORT OF GETTYSBURG MONUMENT COMMITTEE. 

Your Gettysburg Monument Committee respectfully submits the 
following report: We have written 89 letters to each President and 
Chapter in the North Carolina Division urging them to name and 
appoint a Gettysburg Day — preferably Veterans Day — to have ad- 
dresses by orators on North Carolina, Gettysburg historical record, 
and a contribution from every patriotic son and daughter of the 
town, county and State. The Chapel Hill and the- Arlington Monu- 
ment work being primary is an undertaking, and it being the desire 
to finish these monuments before taking up the Gettysburg Monu- 
ment with united hearts and hands, your Committee has not pressed 
the Gettysburg Monument with the zeal that encompasses land and 
sea, as yet. Generous co-operation and contributions have been 
made.

up subscribers, whether renewals or otherwise, we have turned over 
to the Chapel Hill Monument fund six dollars and paid postage on 
copy and correspondence to secure facts for same. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MAUDE TURNER FINGER. 



Madam President and Ladies: 

The Keystone, the official organ of the North Carolina U. D. C. 
since 1907, presents a word of greeting to this Convention. We have 
tried in the past five years, with the assistance of your able North 
Carolina managers, to give the North Carolina U. D. C. a good, help- 
ful, readable column each month in the Keystone. Your late la- 
mented Mrs. Wills did beautiful service in this work and your 
present capable and gifted Mrs. Gordon Finger has been "The 
Column" since her term as Manager. We would be lost without 
her ready help and sympathy with the work. 

We hope the U. D. C. of North Carolina feel a love for and interest 
in their official organ and we promise you faithful and volunteer 
service during the coming year. 

The Keystone, as the offical organ of the U. D. C. of Virginia and 
South Carolina also makes a combination in. its pages of three 
States with a similar Confederate history and so promotes ties of 
friendship and patriotism among these States. 

Sample copies of the Keystone will be distributed at this meet- 
ing and Mrs. Finger will take subscriptions for the Keystone during 
the Convention. A full account of this meeting will appear in the 
November Keystone. The Keystone and the Confederate Veteran 
when subscribed through the Keystone may be had for $1.10 (one 
dollar and ten cents). 

With best wishes for a helpful and successful Convention and 
with promises of faithful and volunteer service for the coming year. 
Respectfully submitted, 

LOUISA R. POPPENHEIM, 
Manager The Keystone, 
Charleston, South Carolina. 

Accepted.

Report from Educational Committee read as follows : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION. 

Madam President: 

/As Chairman of our Educational Committee, I hoped to have for 
you a better report but have been unable to do much that I had 
planned. Very few Chapters answered the letters that Mrs. Ingram, 
Miss McRae and I wrote them, asking for definite pledges, if pos- 
sible. Roanoke Minute Men pledged ten dollars yearly, for four 
years, and some others did well. Chapters should give this fund 
their early attention. We have placed three young ladies in our 
State Normal at Greensboro — Miss Nancy Sidney Dowty, Pamlico 
county; Miss Verd Wilson, Pitt county; Miss Bessie May Pinkstou, 
of Anson county. Miss Dowty has been at the Normal two years 
working her way, and is highly endorsed by President Foust and 
teachers. Miss Wilson's application was longest on file. Miss 
Pinkston is granddaughter of a brave veteran and a girl of fine 
character and attainments. The young man who was to have our 
scholarship at Chapel Hill decided at the last minute to work in- 
stead so President Venable gave it to a worthy applicant. A. & 
M. scholarship is filled by Earnest Knox Herman, son of a Metho- 
dist minister and grandson and nephew of veterans. The scholar- 
ship at Oxford College is still open, also one for Music only at 
Davenport, though advertised. Miss McRae hopes to have one 
next year at Red Springs Seminary. Miss Shipp fills her own at 
Fassifern, as does Professor Graham at Warrenton High School 
and a number of others are filled locally. I feel we have "Just 
begun to fight" on the school question and hope to see this work 
carried on to much greater success. I call to the consideration of 
this Convention, Mrs. Archbell's Magazine, "Carolina and The South- 
ern Cross," the first issue of which has lately reached me. I believe 
she will, if properly supported and encouraged, do a great and highly 
important work in placing in our children's reach a knowledge of 
the History we ourselves have made, and a "Reason for the faith 
that is in us." 

Regretting that I cannot be with you, the first time in ten 
years, I am, Truly yours, 

MARY A. LITTLE,, 
Chairman Educational Committee. 

Reading of reports from the Chapters was taken up. 
Motion made that they be accepted as a whole after being; 
read. Carried.

MRS. THRASH'S ADDRESS. 

Madam President and Daughters of the North Carolina Division 
United Daughters of Confederacy: 
Go with me a few moments back fifty one years to the town of 
Louisburg. Twas there that young Orren Randolph Smith bought 
from J. Barrow's store some red, white and blue material and with 
the assistance of Miss Rebecca Murphy (now Mrs. Winburn) made 
and sent aloft the flag that afterwards was accepted by the com- 
mittee at Montgomery as the flag of the Confederate States of 
America. Major Smith, a brave veteran of several wars, is now 
living in Henderson and 85 years old. In his name it gives me un- 
speakable pleasure and the greatest honor to present to you his 
flag — your flag — the stars and bars that led the men in grey to 
such deeds of heroism and to the highest glory won by any soldiers 
of the known world — the boys of '61-'65.

66 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

SUPPLEMENT TO TABULATED REPORTS. 

CAPE FEAR CHAPTER, No. 3— WILMINGTON. 

Have contributed to all State and General causes possible — to 
Arlington, Shiloh. Gettysburg Monument Funds, to proposed statue 
to General Stonewall Jackson and several lesser causes. Have a 
special fund for relief of needy Veterans, and gave Crosses to Vet- 
erans in Brunswick and Onslow counties, there being no Chapter in 
either county. Have given much attention to familiarizing history 
for ourselves and others. Before business is taken up at each meet- 
ing we have a talk from one of our members on the events of the 
war for that month, and the notes are afterwards turned over to 
Chapter Historian for record. Had a delightful Historical meeting 
in the Spring and hope to have another before year closes. It was 
my pleasure to assist in the writing of an article on Mrs. Rose 
O'Neal Greenhow, the Confederate Dispatch Bearer, which appeared 
in Harper's Monthly Magazine for March, and to supplement it 
with a short sketch in the North Carolina Historical Review on Mrs. 
Greenhow's connection with Wilmington. Both these papers will 
be turned over to State Historian by Cape Fear Chapter. We offered 
a prize of $5.00 to the pupils of certain grades in our Grammar 
schools for the best essay on General Albert Sidney Johnson, 
the subject for the year before being Battle of Shiloh. So many 
papers were sent in. all were so good, and so much interest was 
taken by both children and teachers that we added a second prize 
of $2.50. Thus we hope to deepen their respect and honor for the 
Confederacy — to teach the children that war is holy — if it threatens 
the land God gave them for their country. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. RICHARD PRICE, President. 

PAMLICO CHAPTER, No. 43— WASHINGTON. 

Besides local work and the usual dues to the Educational Fund, 
Sinking Fund, etc., this Chapter has presented Crosses of Honor 
in the counties of Hyde, Dare, Tyrrell, Martin and Washington — two 
to veterans in Maryland and one in California. 

On Memorial Day we were fortunate enough to have as our guest, 
Mr. R. D. W. Connor, who made a brilliant address. After the exer- 
cises at the Auditorium which were, as usual, participated in by 
the Veterans, Children of the Confederacy, Military Company, Naval 
Reserves and Band, dinner was served to more than 300 Veterans 
from this and adjoining counties. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARCIA RODMAN MYERS, President. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 67 

ROBERT F. HOKE CHAPTER, No. 75— SALISBURY. 

Four new members have been added to our number and there are

We have gained four new members and lost three by demits to 
other Chapters. We observed Memorial Day with appropriate exer- 
cises at the cemeteries. On Lee-Jackson Day we had a most enjoy- 
able and interesting speech by Col. I. A. Long. We have contributed 
to the Shiloh, Chapel Hill, Wyatt, and Jackson Monument funds. 
Our Monument fund grows slowly. 

MRS. J. A. LONG, President. 



GASTONIA CHAPTER. No. 955— GASTOXIA. 

The Gastonia Chapter sends greetings to the Convention now in 
session in Salisbury. Our Chapter is in good condition, our member- 
ship continues to grow. We did not publicly observe January 19th, 
but planned a Chapter meeting at which we intended to bestow 
Crosses of Honor. On account of the inclement weather no one 
came. On the next day six veterans came for their crosses, which 
were given them. Memorial Day was celebrated with the usual 
exercises followed by a sumptuous dinner for the 130 veterans 
present. Last winter our Chapter practically supported three vet- 
erans during the most severe weather. Following our usual custom, 
a gold medal was given to the pupil of the tenth grade who wrote 
the best essay on "Robert E. Lee". This has been a busy year for 
the Chapter. Last fall the contract was given for a $3,000 monu- 
ment to be erected on the court house grounds. At that time less 
than $300 was in sight. Now it is practically all raised. The Chap- 
ter has been assisted by the J. D. Moore Children's Chapter of the 
Confederacy. On August 8th we laid the corner stone with appro- 
priate exercises. This day was the annual re-union of the veterans 
of the county and after the corner-stone laying the veterans, their 
wives and the Daughters had a picnic dinner. We hope to unveil 
our monument on October 25th and expect by that time to have the 
balance subscribed. We have given very little to outside causes 
this year but trust in the future to do better. 
Respectfully submitted. 

MRS. D. A. GARRISON, President.

ful dinner served by the Daughters to the old soldiers. The parade 
consisted of daughters of the U. D. C, old Veterans and children

ment fund. This proved to be a real "rally day" for both organi- 
zations and was greatly enjoyed.

During the past year, under our new President, Mrs. W. R. 
Walker, our Chapter has taken on new life, and more has been 
accomplished than ever before. On June 23rd we presented 13 
Crosses of Honor to veterans, each Cross being presented by a 
Daughter, who gave a little sketch of his record as a soldier. A* 
this time we gave them a basket picnic, which was well attended 
and much enjoyed. We are helping to support one veteran at his 
home by sending monthly donations. 



BRIARFIELD CHAPTER, No. 1151— THOMASVILLE. 

The Briarfield Chapter, No. 1151, of Thomasville, N. O, Division 
of U. D. O, has paid its annual dues, State and general taxes. We 
have 34 members; six Crosses of Honor were presented on June 
3rd. Memorial Day was observed with fitting exercises and the 
graves decorated with many beautiful flowers. We entertained the 
veterans on June 3rd, an appropriate program was carried out. We 
have an energetic Children's Chapter. 

On the 4th day of March, 1912, our beloved eldest member, also 
a charter member, was removed from us by death, Mrs. Sallie 
Thomas, who was our Historian. 

Floral designs were sent during the year, one to the member, 
and two to Veterans. 

Ten dollars has been given to Arlington Monument, $5.00 to

There are 33 Confederate Soldiers buried in Thomasville who 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 83 

were brought here to a hospital from Bentonville, K. C, where they 
were wounded during the last year of the war. Many of them died 
the following day after having been brought here. It is for these 
as well as our own native veterans, that we are striving to erect 
a monument, and for this reason we have been unable to give 
much outside help. Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. H. G. STRAYHORN, President. 



CASWELL COUNTY CHAPTER, No. 1152— YANCEYVILLE.

assembled at Salisbury. This is our third annual report. We have

of the great "Stonewall" was orator of the day. Memorial Day was 
fittingly observed. 



NORFLEET-HARRELL CHAPTER, No. 1234— MURFREESBORO. 

In December two short plays were presented by members of our 
Chapter, at which time $29.59 was taken in. In February we gave 
a Valentine party and realized $7.72. In April a Shiloh program 
was prepared but so few being present it was dispensed with.

was speaker for the occasion. Collection was taken at this time 
for the Jackson monument in Richmond to the amount of $6.30.

gratis. Realized $7.81. We have lost one member by demit, one 
by removal and added one new member to our roll.

NORTH WILKESBORO. 

This Chapter is only one year old and has a good many school 
girls (or rather College girls) in it who have been away from home 
most of the year, consequently could not assist in getting up enter- 
tainments, or any money making affairs very much. We hope to 
make a better report next year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. CARRIE PILSON, President. 



86 Minutes of the Slxteentii Annual Convention 
CHILDREN'S CHAPTER REPORTS. 

JULIA JACKSON CHAPTER— CHARLOTTE. 

The Julia Jackson Chapter, Children of the Confederacy, was re- 
organized in January, 1912, with nine members. The enrollment 
now is 47. One demit has been given during the year. The meet- 
ings are held on the first Friday of each month in the Veteran's 
Hall or the children's or leaders' homes. Not a meeting has been 
missed this year. The average attendance has been 18. 

The dues for the year amounted to $4.70. 

A box of Confederate Seals has been sold for the Arlington Monu- 
ment. 

Two dollars was given to the Gettysburg Monument, and two 
dollars to the Shiloh Monument. 

The Chapter assisted the mother Chapter celebrate Davis, Lee 
and Jackson birthday, also took part in the Memorial exercises and 
assisted in decorating the Confederate graves. 

They attended the funeral and sent a beautiful design when the 
Angel of Death took away the commander of the Veteran's Camp — 
Captain Smith. 

At each meeting the Chapter sings Confederate songs in chorus, 
holds a business session, recites the catechism, has a program on 
some historical subject, and closes with a social hour during which 
refreshments are served. The chief object of each meeting has 
been to learn true Confederate History. Some of our subjects have 
been "Stonewall Jackson," "Our Southern Flags,"' "Our Women 
During the War," "The Old South's Civilization," "Camp Life During 
the War." One of our most enjoyable meetings was Confederate 
Pictures which a member. Turner Finger, showed with his Mirro- 
scope. 

In January each member was supplied with a catechism — a lesson 
was assigned for each meeting. At the last meeting of the year 
a contest was held and almost every question in the book answered 
by eleven children. 

On account of illness of the leader we did not accomplish all that 
we planned — we expected to do more for the veterans. This month 
we will give an entertainment the proceeds to go to them. 

The Chapter is in splendid condition and we hope to have a better 
report in 1913. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. M. A. HASTINGS, Leader. 



JANE HUGHES CHAPTER— NEW BERN. 

Our Chapter has held regular meetings on the 10th of each month

brating all anniversaries. During this year we have subscribed to 
the "Keystone" for two years. Have contributed $2.00 to the Albe- 
marle monument. Contributed $1.00 to a needy veteran. 

To arouse the interest of the children we offered a Daughter's 
Pin to the one who would prepare the most interesting program 
(appointing the executive officers a program committee) during the 
year and this prize was won by the President of the Chapter, Sophia 
Jones Hollister. We realized $14.50 from the annual sweet pea 
show.' Seven have recited the catechism perfectly. We have added 
ten new members making a total of 129 members. 

Dues collected $8.35 

Receipts 33 . 45 

Disbursements 11 . 35 

Cash on hand 66.59

ings and takes pleasure in giving an account of its stewardship. 

Meetings are held regularly on the 18th of each month, and are 
largely attended. Officers of the Chapter are as follows: 

President — Mary Hargrove Hall. 

Vice-President — Athalia Rankin Bunting. 

Secretary — Bessie Brock Toon.

been added during the year, three transferred to Cape Pear Chapter. 

The work of the Chapter consists in taking an active part in the 
observance of "Memorial Day," "Lee and Jackson Day," and "June 
3rd — Birthday of President Jefferson Davis", caring for the "George 
Davis Monument and Grounds," also decorating the grave of our 
beloved Statesman on his birthday. 

We have contributed liberally to Veteran's Fund. 

Owing to lateness in securing rules prescribed by Convention, in 
regard to winning Flag donated by Mrs. Craig, we were unable to 
enter contest. 

The Treasurer shows Chapter to be in good financial condition. 

MRS. CUTHBERT MARTIN, Leader. 

Wilmington, N. C, October, 1912. 



STARS AND BARS CHAPTER— NEWTON. 

The Stars and Bars Children's Chapter, is in a very flourishing 
condition, and the children are very much interested in their work. 



88 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

On Lee-Jackson Day they took part in the exercises as they did 
also on Memorial Day. On this latter occasion the children collect 
and carry the flowers that are placed on the graves and around the 
monument, also doing much of the singing. 

They contributed $5.00 to the Shiloh monument fund. 

On all occasions they are ready and willing to obey any call on 
them made by the Daughters or veterans. 

MRS. W. C. FEIMSTER, Leader. 



J. D. MOORE CHAPTER— GASTONIA. 

The J. D. Moore, Children's Chapter, comes this year with a heart 
brimming over with gladness and pride because its fondest hope, 
coupled with that of the Mother Chapter, is soon to be realized in 
the unveiling of a beautiful monument to honor Gaston County's 
brave and noble soldiers. 

To the cost of this monument, this faithful band of zealous 
workers has donated $300 — having, by hard work, made every cent 
of it with their own hands and with which they paid in full for the 
handsome statue of a private soldier that will grace the top of it. 

After this contribution they found at their first meeting this fall, 
only a little nest-egg, $23.30, left in their treasury, and at once de- 
clared something must be done. So with energetic spirit and busy 
hands they went to work — the result being a Garden-Fete, selling 
delicious ices, punch, cake, and all kinds of home-made candies, all 
of which they made themselves and sold on the town's public square 
— made on this occasion into a veritable fairy-land amid a blaze of 
incandescent lights, flowers and artistically decorated tables, etc. 
From this they cleared $43, making a total of $66.30 now in their 
treasury. 

The work of the Chapter this year will be to continue the study 
of General Robert E. Lee in both his home and war life. Also to 
read at each meeting a portion of the State and General "Minutes", 
so that the children may have a clearer knowledge of the work of 
the Organization. 

Meetings are held monthly in the home of the different members. 
Roll call answered with historical couplets, and after all business 
is transacted, historical essays, readings, recitations and music 
constitute the latter part of their program — but immediately after 
adjournment no social function nor more delicious refreshments are 
ever enjoyed more than those prepared by each little hostess. 

All Celebration Days are fittingly observed and the children assist 
the Daughters in any possible way. It is their hands that lay flowers 
on the graves of our sacred Dead on May the 10th. 

Eight new members have joined our Ranks during the last month 
;and all are busy preparing the work for another year. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. THOMAS LEE CRAIG, Leader.

FRANK BENNETT CHAPTER— WADESBORO. 

Wadesboro, N. C, October 8, 1912. 

Greetings from the Frank Bennett Chapter, Children of the Con- 
federacy. 

We herewith report our year's work, which owing to unavoidable 
circumstances has not been as successful as we had hoped for, 
and our efforts seem indeed feeble when measured with our aspira- 
tions for this noble cause. 

We have a membership of sixty members, with an average attend- 
ance of thirty at each monthly meeting, and we claim the best and 
most efficient officers that preside over any Chapter. 

Lee and Jackson Day was celebrated with exercises at the Graded 
School Auditorium. Rev. Mr. Doyle addressed the children, and 
Jefferson Davis' birthday was appropriately remembered. 

On May the 10th the Children marched to the cemetery and deco- 
rated each Soldier's grave with wreaths of ever-greens and garlands 
of flowers. 

Our work in the main for the past year, has been the furnishing 
and fitting up of Memorial Hall. Through the kindness of Major 
Smith, the children had donated to them a room, and on April the 
29th, a reception was given and the Chapter displayed to their 
guests a neat, comfortable room, well filled with relics and memen- 
toes that. would make a valuable collection for any museum. On 
this occasion we had the pleasure of having as our guest of honor, 
our beloved State President, Mrs. F. M. Williams, and her en- 
thusiasm and hearty commendation of this work has been a great 
stimulus and encouragement to the Children. This year we have 
raised $32.00, of this amount $5.00 has been given to Arlington, 
$3.00 to Endowment Fund, $2.00 to Shiloh, $18.25 has been spent 
on the home work, and a balance of $3.64 remains in the treasury. 

The Chapter has felt keenly the absence from several of its meet- 
ings, of their superior leader Mrs. Eugene Little, who through ill- 
ness has been kept away, for her wonderful enthusiasm and sweet 
spirit bestirs in each member a desire to accomplish more for the 
cause which is so dear to her. 

MRS. LESLIE J. HUNTLEY, Leader. 



ANNIE K. KYLE CHAPTER— FAYETTEVILLE. 

The Annie K. Kyle Chapter is pleased to report another year of 
successful work. After enjoying the rest and delights that a vaca- 
tion gives, the first meeting of the Fall opened with new energy 
and satisfactory results. 

The Chapter has grown strong the past year, both in members 
and good work. The monthly Saturday morning meetings have been 
well attended and are always interesting. A few vacancies have 
occurred by members moving away, yet new recruits come in to 
take these places, and the Secretary's roll shows that we are 



90 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

steadily gaining. Our bank book also shows that we have a fund 
on hand to answer any call of need. A box of clothing, toys and 
confections is sent to the children of some Veteran at Christmas 
time. 

On the 10th of May the Chapter maintained its reputation by 
uniting with the Mother Chapter in the Veterans' Dinner exercises, 
cheering the hearts of the old soldiers with inspiring war songs. 
Afterwards had places of honor in the line of march to the Soldiers's 
cemetery, the "little Daughters" riding in automobiles — there to 
place a flower on the graves of those who wore the grey. 

With hearts loyal and true, full of zeal for the cause we love 
and seek to perpetuate, this report is 

Most respectfully submitted, 
MISS KATE MATTHEWS, Leader. 



W. G. QUACKENBUSH CHAPTER— LAURINBURG. 

This Chapter can report a very good year. Several of the mem- 
bers have moved away — but I can report fifty live members all eager 
to work, 13 of these being new members. About twenty-five of 
them know the catechism though not all of them can give it word 
for word. About 20 of my members are too small to learn it, but I 
try to teach them the first of it. We have tried to establish Chap- 
ters in Maxton, Gibson and Rockingham. The latter place promises 
to organize as soon as a suitable leader can be found. We have 
no needy veterans so we have sent $10 to the Soldiers' Home, and 
$10 for a scholarship for some Confederate child. We also sent 
$15 to the Arlington Monument and have given $255.00 to our own 
monument. Our year's record is $355.30. I would like to say that 
in the three years of this little Chapter's existence they have made 
$611.90. They have sent out of that $25.00 to the Old Ladies Home, 
$35 to Arlington, $25.00 to Chapel Hill, bought pictures of Davis, 
Lee and Jackson for our graded school, and give $555.30 to our own 
monument. They are now working up a play which will pay up 
the $48.00 still due on our monument. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. T. T. COVINGTON, Leader. 

Since writing the above we find a mistake was made in amount 
in bank, and it was found that we had enough to finish paying for 
our monument and $32.00 to our credit. 



ROCKY MOUNT JUNIORS— ROCKY MOUNT. 

The Children's Chapter of the Bethel Heroes greet you with love 
and best wishes. 

Our meetings are well attended, held regularly the last Saturday 
in each month with different members. We have 34 enrolled. 

We take part in all public exercises of our mother Chapter. The 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 01 

children are very enthusiastic over helping to build a Confederate 
Memorial Hospital in our town. We gave $25.00 to help mark the 
graves of our beloved veterans. Have $26.50 in bank. My disappoint- 
ment at not being able to attend this Convention is intense. 
Very respectfully, 

MRS. ROBERT C. BURTON, Leader. 
P. S. — We are very much in need of a name. Please send us one. 



THE ROCKINGHAM VOLUNTEERS— REIDSVILLE. 

We have had a very successful year; have added seven new 
members, making an enrollment of 32 now. Have only failed to 
meet one time that was in August. We usually have very full at- 
tendance and an enthusiastic Chapter. We meet around at the 
homes of the children. Opening with prayer we have patriotic 
songs, recitations, music, historical sketches, a quiz on the cate- 
chism, &c, followed by refreshments by the hostess. But as a 
suggestion I believe we could create more enthusiasm and do more 
systematic, thorough work if we had special programs gotten out by 
the Convention, or some member or committee thereof, to be used 
each month. Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. FLORENCE C. BROOKS, Leader. 
MRS. R. C. GLADSTONE, Assistant. 



LEE-JACKSON CHAPTER— DURHAM. 
Regular meetings of the Lee-Jackson Chapter have been held dur- 
ing the past year. The meetings have been largely attended and 
very enthusiastic. The program is always planned by the leader 
and a program committee and then turned over to the President 
of the Chapter who always presides. The officers are allowed to 
remain in only one year, so many are given an opportunity to hold 
office. There are 26 members of the Lee-Jackson Chapter and two 
applications pending. The girls took a prominent part in the exer- 
cises held on Lee's Birthday and also in the 10th of May program. 
They were on hand to assist in the barbecue given to the veterans 
by the Julian S. Carr Chapter. 

Their contributions this year have been $12.00 to the Monument 
fund for Durham and $2.75 towards the expenses for Memorial Day 
exercises and $18.00 for the Arlington Monument fund, making a 
total of $32.75. Their main object now is to work for a monument 
for Durham.

BONNIE BLUE FLAG CHAPTER— LENOIR. 

The Bonnie Blue Flag Chapter has 40 members. Meetings held 
monthly and are well attended. On January 19th this Chapter pre- 



92 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

sented to our Graded School a portrait of Stonewall Jackson. Me- 
morial Day was observed by all the school children in our town, 
800 in number; the procession was led by this Chapter. Two dol- 
lars was given to the Shiloh monument fund. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. R. L. GWYN, Leader. 



MRS. WM. M. PARSLEY CHAPTER— MURFREESBORO. 

In March we gave an entertainment, which was considered by 
many the best of its kind ever seen in town, our receipts were $12.00. 

On the 10th of May Memorial Day was observed — the girls in 
white carrying garlands of flowers and the boys with Confederate 
flags marched through the principle streets and to all known Con- 
federate graves leaving their tokens of love. 

In June we joined the Norfleet-Harrell Chapter in celebrating 
Davis' birthday, and on Aug. 23rd we were very much in evidence at 
an ice cream supper given by the Norfleet-Harrell Chapter, assist- 
ing in the preparations and as waiters for the occasion. As usual 
on public occasions, we wore white dresses, and ribbons and tiny 
silk Confederate Flags. 

Our Leader has written four letters to other Chapters asking them 
to organize Children's Chapters. We had eight names on our roll 
last year (our first), we now have 19. 

We have made the following disbursements this year: 

Soldiers' Home ' $ 5 . 00 

Chapel Hill 2 . 00 

Home of Wives and Widows 2 . 00 

Shiloh 1 . 00 

Jackson monument in Richmond 2 . 30 

Expenses for Entertainment 2.65 

Total $14 . 90 

Amount in Treasury, 65 cents. 
Thelma Nicholson, President. 
Elra Worrell, Secretary. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GERTRUDE E. LAWRENCE, Leader. 



THOMASVILLE GRAYS CHAPTER— THOMASVILLE. 

The Thomasville Grays Chapter was organized June 29, 1911, with 
15 members. We now number 29. We meet once a month and at 
each meeting have a program. Our course of study has been the 
N. C. History. We observed Lee's birthday and assisted in the 
Memorial exercises May 10th. 

Recently we presented the Baby Opera, which netted us quite a 
nice little sum for the monument to be erected in our town. 

MRS. H. G. STRAYHORN, Leader.

JAMES A. WESTON CHAPTER— HICKORY. 

My dear Mrs. Royster: Enclosed find report for Chapter; 

Children's Chapter No. 1. 

Name — James A. Weston. 

Leader — Mrs. R. A. Grimes. 

Number of members, 11. 

Miss Fran L. Martin, President. 

Miss Emma Bonner, Secretary. 

I do not know if this is all right but I hope it will do. 

Hope you will have a lovely time. 



WINNIE DAVIS CHAPTER— KINSTON. 

The Winnie Davis Children's Chapter of Kinston has 66 members 
enrolled but owing to the fact that the most of the boys have 
outgrown and dropped out of the Chapter and others have moved 
away there remains only about 30 active members. 

We have given entertainments for raising money. As a result 
we have on hand a number of character costumes, wigs, buckles, 
&c, the property of the Chapter which will save some expense in 
the future. Before the 10th of May we invested in a number of 
flags and other decorations with which we decorated the court house 
and the wagons and motors on which the children rode, when the 
mother Chapter invited them to join with her in the commemora- 
tion of the Confederate dead on memorial day. The wagons or 
floats were a new feature and proved to be attractive. The Governor 
made the oration on the occasion. 

At Christmas the children sold sealts for Arlington $1.20, to which 
they added $1.30 making a total of $2.50 for Arlington. 

The sale of cards amounted to 60 cents to which they added $1.90 
including the price of the cards for Shiloh and making a total of 
$2.50 for the Shiloh monument. 

As the President and Leader were both very ill in August and 
September the sums were not sent to the treasurers but to the 
Convention by the Leader. 

The Leader bought 20 pamphlets written by J. Ogden Murry, 
giving a short biography of Jefferson Davis. She started a circu- 
lating library in the Chapter. Each child that took a book promised 
to read it and pass it on till every member of the Chapter had read 
the book; then they promised to circulate it outside till the books 
have familiarized the people in Kinston with the life of the Con- 
federacy's only President. I consider this work important. 

A paper on the "Meaning of Dixie" was prepared for the Chapter 
by the Leader and afterward, at their request, it was published in 
the News & Observer and was appreciated enough to be copied by 
several other papers. Numerous letters have been received by the 
Leader congratulating her on the interpretation of Dixie. Other 



94 Minutes of the Sixteenth Annual Convention 

papers have been read in the Chapter during the year. Ten new 
members have been added to the roll. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LILLIE ARCHBELL, Leader. 



DIXIE GRAYS CHAPTER— HICKORY. 

As the Dixie Grays Chapter of the Confederacy was organized only 
three weeks ago, and only one meeting has been held, our report 
will be very brief. 

We have a membership of 20 and a number of application blanks 
have been asked for, so we hope by our next monthly meeting to 
have thirty or more members. We have already started a Savings 
Bank account. The little members are very enthusiastic and are 
making great plans for the future. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. CHARLES MENZIES. Leader. 



MOUNT OLIVE CHAPTER— MOUNT OLIVE. 

The Children's Chapter of Mount Olive has not had a successful 
year financially on account of their Leader not being able to meet 
with them very often. Their meetings however have been well 
attended and they seem very much interested in their work. The 
Chapter is now at work trying to assist the "Mother Chapter" in 
erecting a drinking fountain which we hope to erect at some time 
in the near future. Respectfully submitted, 

KATE S. STEELE. 



THOMAS GARRETT CHAPTER— WINDSOR. 

The Thomas Garrett Children's Chapter begs to report that it has 
met with all the requirements, having also assisted the mother 
Chapter in its celebrations. The attendance at the monthly meet- 
ings varies, as is not unusual but in the main the children attend 
well and are interested. The membership numbers 27 and the 
treasury boasts of $27.15. 

MINNIE T. BOND, Leader. 

Windsor, N. C, Sept. 19, 1912. 



STATESVILLE CHAPTER— STATESVILLE. 

The Statesville Chapter of the Children of the Confederacy has 
45 on roll; average attendance very small. On the tenth of May 
we have a full attendance of the children and they decorate the 
graves. They attended in a body the funeral of Adjutant General 
Leinster. Marched in the procession and were given reserved

seats in the church. No effort to make money is made by the 
Chapter. MRS. L. S. THOMAS, President. 



ORREN RANDOLPH SMITH CHAPTER— HENDERSON. 

The Orren Randolph Smith Chapter, Children of the Confederacy, 
Henderson, N. C, sends greetings. 

As we are only a few months old our report is short, yet we are 
proud to say, that organized in July, we have already forty members. 
We have $10 in our treasury and have undertaken to place marble 
markers on all unmarked soldiers graves in the Confederate square 
in our cemetery. 

We hold our meetings regularly once a month and have the fol- 
lowing officers: 

Susan Lamb, President. 

Tempie Bass, Secretary. 

William Waddill, Treasurer. 

MRS. MAURICE O'NEIL, Leader.

U. D. C— 7 



in iYlemovium 



1 1 is with deepest sorrow that we have lost from our 
midst General Robert F. Hoke, who represented all that 
was best in our Southern manhood. 

■ General Hoke's life attained to that of the ideal. "Brave, 
honest, courteous — modest as a woman — none knew him 
but to love and admire." 

He was one of whom it can be written, "without fear and 
without reproach." In his death, the State has lost one of 
her greatest sons, and the youth of our country, the perfect 
example of the dignified, courteous gentleman of the Old 
School.

LUCILE BROWNLEY COBB, 

Chairman Credential Com. U. D. C. 
Date October 8, 1913. 

The President asked that a rising vote of thanks be 
given Mrs. Mercer for her song, which was heard here 
last night for the first time. 

The President's report was read. Seconded and ac- 
cepted. 

ADDRESS OF MRS. MARSHALL WILLIAMS, 

President of North Carolina Division, U. D. C. 

Daughters of North Carolina, I greet you in this our seven- 
teenth annual convention in a new capacity, standing at the helm 
of ship trying to guide into untried waters. The captain is pow- 
erless without his crew, therefore I ask your consideration, your 
helpfulness and your indulgence for mistakes. The head of each 
department has felt her responsibility and aided in making this 
a splendid report. We announce a large increase in membership 
and four new chapters. Trenton Chapter organized May 5th, 
Mrs. Lizzie Newell, president; Onslow Guards Chapter of Jack- 
sonville, organized May 17th, Mrs. Murrill, president; The Ash- 



12 MINUTES OF THE SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 



ley Home Chapter of Clayton, re-organized July 17th, Mrs. Her- 
bert McCullers, president; China Grove Chapter, organized Sep- 
tember 22nd, Mrs. W. G. Swink, president. Our able State Di- 
rector of Children's Chapters, Mrs. Gordon Finger of Charlotte, 
reports six new chapters and will give their names and leaders 
in her report. The Orran Randolph Smith Children's Chapter, 
Henderson, Mrs. G. A. Rose leader, raised a fund of $211.00 for 
the Veterans of the Henry L. Wyatt Camp to attend the reunion 
at Gettysburg. We are proud to record such substantial patriot- 
ism. Realizing the great trust you had placed in her hands and 
knowing there is wisdom in a multitude of council, your Presi- 
dent invited the full membership of the Executive Board to be 
her guests in Faison, December 4th, to discuss the work and 
plan for the coming year. 

Last November the Division received invitations for the con- 
vention of 1913 from Tarboro and Raleigh. The Executive 
Board appreciated highly both invitation. Tarboro's came first 
and we accepted that most gratefully. 

We examined the bids for the minutes and placed the pub- 
lication with Nash Bros of Goldsboro. Mrs. E. C. Chambers' sug- 
gestion to tabulate the reports helped to reduce the cost of min- 
utes. 

We discussed plans for grouping the Chapters for District 
meetings. Your President appointed sixteen directors to preside 
over these meetings and selected the date, April 26th, in honor 
of the birthday of Mrs. William Parsley of Wilmington, the 
founder of North Carolina U. D. C. work. During this conven- 
tion the Directors will meet and discuss changes in the grouping 
of the chapters. Not knowing the railroad facilities we realize 
the grouping can be improved, I would suggest hereafter the 
Hostess Chapter select the date for the d ; strict meeting and 
that the ratio of attendance for the delegates be increased. 
These meetings have resulted in great good as both newspaper 
accounts and telegrams assured your President. 

Your President has signed and sent out three hundred and 
seventy-six certificates, also sent demits and badge permits. 
Please remember each member is required to have a Certificate, 
15 cents each. 

Our educational work has progressed under the leadership 
of Mrs. Eugene Little. We now have fifteen scholarships, valued 
at fourteen hundred dollars. Now Daughters, we come to a 
serious problem, our educational fund; many reminders had to 
be sent the Chapters for the money due the Greensboro Normal 
College for the three girls we are educating there. This con- 
tinual drain on the Chapters has forced your President to this 
solution, that we establish a Loan Educational Fund, designed 



or love

UNITED DAUGHTERS OF THE CONFEDERACY. 13 



to advance money to the sons and daughters of Veterans for se- 
curing vocational education. 

Daughters, we have glorious news for you, the gift of a 
Woman's Confederate Home from our beloved State to be erect- 
ed at Fayetteville, annuial maintenance $5,000. We congratu- 
late Mrs. Hunter G. Smith, the author of this movement. Her 
zeal and energy richly merited this reward. Too much praise 
cannot be given the Hon. T. T. Thorne of Rocky Mount for sue-' 
cessfully introducing this bill. 

The Division rejoices in the completion of the "Boy Sol- 
diers" monument erected on the campus of the University, June 
2nd. Your President assisted in the unveiling, this labor of love 
was begun five years ago by Mrs. James Keenan as chaii 
and later continued by Mrs. Henry A. London. The mom 
is beautiful and points out daily two great lessons, patriotism 
and duty. The monument cost $7,500 and the Daughters.. were 
greatly aided by the Alumni of the University. Brevard:- owns a 
handsome Chapter House, setting an example worthy of emula- 
tion. 

The Chapters of Gastonia and Winton have erected monu- 
ments. The Burgaw monument is ready for erection. The 
Mount Olive Chapter has given an order for- a handsome Memo- 
rial Drinking Fountain. Now that the monument at Chapel Hill 
is nearly finished, let us put our energy on the erection of the 
monument at Gettysburg, which will tell the story of North Car- 
olina's glory. 

Last year we presented to Captain O. R. Smith a Confederate 
watch charm. A committee was appointed to collect funds for 
the payment of same. Mrs. Morris O'Neil of Henderson re- 
ported $8.00. The balance was paid by the Division. This token 
of esteem reached this gallant, Confederate soldier shortly be- 
fore his death. 

Last year Mrs. Archbell, editor of the Carolina and South- 
ern Cross, asked and received the endorsement of your Division. 
She has given a most excellent monthly magazine full of his- 
torical research, and this publication can be of great service to 
o"r cause. The Chapters can report their work through this 
medium much to the advantage of each other. Unless this pub- 
lication receives your financial support Mrs. Archbell says it will 
have to be discontinued. 

Our contributions to Arlington and Shiloh monuments speak 
well for our State Directors, Mrs. I. W. Faison of Charlotte and 
Mrs. F. M. Williams of Newton. These ladies have brought 
signal honors to their State. Mrs. I. W. Faison was elected 
T hird Vice-President General of the U. D. C. in Washington. As 
nany of you know Mrs. F. M. Williams has the great honor of 



14 MINUTES OF THE SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 



being chairman of the Revision of the General Constitution. 
Again was North Carolina complimented by the appointment of 
Miss Jessica Smith on the Transportation Committee by the 
President General. The President General has complimented 
our Recording Secretary, Mrs. T. W. Thrash, on her Roster re- 
port, saying it was the best from all the States. 

The Weldon Chapter has come into possession of an his- 
torical cemetery where a hundred and fifty Confederate soldiers 
lie in unmarked graves and would like aid from the Division in 
the care of this sacred spot. 

Your President has received many invitations to visit Chap- 
ters, was also invited by Mrs. Cotton to the Federation of Wom- 
en's Clubs in New Bern, where she extended greetings from the 
Division. Your President was invited by Miss Easdale Shaw to 
address the King's Circle which met in Wilmington. Your Pres- 
ident made two visits to the Soldier's Home and tried to speak 
words of cheer. While in Raleigh was the guest of Mrs. Wil- 
liam J. Andrews, who tendered, a reception to your President to 
meet the Johnson-Pettigrew Chapter. Mrs. W. J. Andrews of 
Raleigh, N. C, and her sister, Mrs. W. P. Trimble, of Seattle, 
Washington State, have given three thousand dollars to the 
Solid South Room Confederate Museum, Richmond; $1,000 to 
place a tablet to the memory of their mother, Mrs. Francis Ford, 
of Kentucky; $2,000 goes to the Endowment Fund for this 
room. We are proud this gift is shared by an adopted daugh- 
ter of North Carolina, whose broad philanthrophy is well known 
in the State. Your President has attended four meetings of the 
Directors of the Confederate Women's home, and was at the 
first meeting in Rocky Mount. 

During the year your President has visited the following 
Chapters: Wilmington, Goldsboro, Kinston, Raleigh, Dunn, and 
Clinton, on each occasion was the recipient of many courtesies. 

Now Daughters, your President feels that her report has 
been long and there are some subjects not touched on for want 
of time and space. However, she cannot close without express- 
ing her appreciation of the valuable work done this year by our 
Historian, Miss Carrie Leazar. 

Allow me to thank you collectively and individually for 
your able assistance, and for your patience. 

MRS. MARSHALL WILLIAMS, 

President N. C. Division. 

Motion made by Mrs. H. A. London that letters ex-

lev, Mrs. Stonewall Jackson and Miss Hettie James.

THE REPORT OF THE RECORDING SECRETARY X. C. DI- 
VISION U. D. C. TARBORO CONVENTION. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It is with pleasure and pride that I bring to you the fourth

Chapters, which is most gratifying. Over six hundred letters 
and 370 postals have been written. Again I wish to thank you 
for the confidence you Lave placed in me and to assure you, 
dear Daughters, of my highest appreciation of the same. 
Respectfully submitted, 

JACKSIE DANIEL THRASH.

Madame President and Daughters: — 

For the third time I come to report my work of the year 
past: 343 applications registered; 16 demits, 4 of these coming 
to us from other Divisions. 

I have written 227 letters and 29 postal cards. According 
to my books, we have now a membership numbering 4644 in this 
Division, but I am far from sure that this is accurate. 

I have succeeded in bringing "order out of chaos" with 
some of the Chapters, and their rosters now agree perfectly with 
the State books. 

But alas! these are not many. Some chapters have begun 
the good work, but not completed it, while many have made no 
effort at all to straighten out their records. 

Out of our large number of Chapters only about 15 have sent 
in any lists this fall, and not more than six have sent in any list 
of their dead, transferred, married or withdrawn. Can you not 
understand that a Registrar cannot possibly keep accurate rec- 
ords unless the Chapter officials send in their statements at 
least once a year? 

I trust that they may awake to the importance of this and 
pay more attention to it, there by making lighter the task of my 
successor. 

I hope that she may find as much pleasure in the work as 
I have done. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANNIE R. JONES DAVIS. 

Recorder of Crosses report read and accepted. 

REPORT OF RECORDER OF CROSSES OF HONOR. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

During the year I have awarded 451 crosses. Of this num- 
ber, 12 were to widows and 63 to descendants. Eighteen crosses 



UNITED DAUGHTERS OF THE CONFEDERACY. 



19 



were refused, four because applicants service was civil and not 
military or naval; the other fourteen were made by nieces, 
nephews, or sisters, none of whom are eligible. 

I have on hand about 50 applications that came in too late 
for bestowal August 23rd; these will be sent off for January 19th, 
1914. If the Chapters officers would just remember that the Re- 
corder has to get the applications to the Custodian three weeks 
before the day of presentation, a great deal of disappointment 
would be prevented by having Mrs. Raines refuse to fill late 
orders. Her work is so great she has to adhere to the rules. I 
have found Mrs. Raines considerate but strictly business, and 
we in turn must be likewise. 

The expense of the office could have been halved if rules 
had been followed. Mrs. Raines refuses stamps for over one 
cross; this year I had twelve orders in which stamps were sent 
for a large number of crosses. I had to go to the postoffice and 
get money orders before I could forward the application. Twelve 
were to be sent payable to me, these had to be cashed and new 
orders made out to Mrs. Raines; six inclosed the stamp money for 
forwarding, with Mrs. Raines' order and I had to furnish the 
stamps. Many made no allowance for forwarding, and several 
sent application blanks but nothing else. All these things in- 
creased the expenses of the office three fold. 

Interest in the work has continued. Forty-three Chapters 
have presented crosses; and 70 orders were sent off. While the 
number of crosses presented is only one-third of last year, we can 
all see what a calamity it wiuld have been if no crosses were 
given this year. When the New Orleans convention meets and 
the constitution is revised we should strive to see that the books 
are not closed so long as there is one veteran who desires a 
cross. 

Below is a tabulated list of crosses presented:

Historian's report read and accepted. Motion made 



UNITED DAUGHTERS OF THE CONFEDERACY. 21 

to give Miss Leazar a rising vote of thanks for her 
good work. 

REPORT OF MISS CARRY A. LEAZAR, STATE HISTORIAN. 

Madam President and Daughters of the North Carolina Division, 
United Daughters of the Confederacy: 

I have the honor and the pleasure to report herewith the 
historical work of this Division for the year 1912-1913. 

Your Historian was delayed in taking up the responsibility 
laid upon her by a protracted illness and began work after the 
lapse of several months. Many forms of historical work present- 
ed themselves. After careful consideration I deemed it wise to 
concentrate the energies of this Division upon that which was 
and is most imperative. In the letter written to every Chapter, 
the many written to some Chapters, in the several visits and 
talks made, our winged opportunity and our now well-nigh su- 
preme duty as an order was stressed. We must secure the liv- 
ing word of survivors of the Confederacy, and this, the living 
word, has been the call of your historian through the year, and 
it has been made, in so far as in her lay, insistent; and system- 
atic. If it has been in some degree mandatory in its definite and 
specific requests, my fellow-workers will pardon the hard-bearer. 
The results are as follows: 

Typewritten papers 61 pp. $2.38 

Manuscripts 162 pp. 7.35 

Printed matter 14 pp. 3.61 

Clippings 35 

Photographs 2 

Paintings 4 

278 $13.34 

The design of the Stars and Bars by a North Carolinian, 
Orrin Randolph Smith of Warren county, is established. This 
work was committed by your Historian to Mrs. Fannie Ransom 
Williams and has been thoroughly done. That the last full 
meeting of the Confederate cabinet was held in Charlotte has 
also been made clear through the work of Mrs. J. A. Fore, his- 
torian of Stonewall Jackson Chapter. 

Far short of what it should be, the volume of the year's work 

is unprecedented and it is with cheer of the and 

most cordial thanks to fellow workers that I report contribu- 
tions to the priceless treasure it is ours to store for all time:

Mrs. D. Burkheimer, Mrs. Alfred Nixon, Mrs. A. C. Ray and 
Mrs. Fannie R. S. Williams and Mrs. L. V. Archbell made most 
valuable individual contributions. A notable gift has been the 
file of Carolina and the Southern Cross by Mrs. Archbell. The 
historian is constrained to say that her great but well-nigh single- 
handed work does the Division of which she is a member great 
honor. Let us make this magazine more truly ours for North 
Carolina's sake. 

I have made some investigation as to text-books; have en- 
dorsed, numbered and catalogued our collection of 1912-1913 
and filed it in the fire-proof archives of the Historical Commis- 
sion of the State of North Carolina; and have made report of the 
work of the year to the Historian General . 

Respectfully submitted, 

CARRY A. LEAZAR, Historian.
